Holcomb maintains several types of residential service options based on the level of support and type of environment needed by a client.
• Community Residential Rehabilitation (CRR) is a residential program for adults with mentally ill that offers 24 hr/day staffing and support. Valuable Activity of Daily Living Skills are taught by staff and clients learn in a communal, supportive environment. Case management services are also offered, to aid in the client’s eventual reintegration to the larger community. The respective county oversee the admission process to these programs. The recommended length of stay is up to three years.
• Personal Care Home (PCH) is a residential program that is a higher level of care than most CRR’s. The residents in these programs usually have more chronic illnesses and an overlay of medical concerns in addition to their mental health diagnosis. The level of staffing is higher than other residential programs, to assist consumers with complex needs. Residents may have extended lengths of stay.
• Group Home is a smaller, family-style residence that offers the same level of support as the CRR program, but in a home-like atmosphere. Residents of this program are referred by the respective county, and may be permitted, and encouraged, to stay in this program as long as they need and desire.
• Residential Treatment Facility (RTF) - Holcomb’s residential program for high-risk adolescents, ages 11-17 is designed to work with adolescents that are at risk of serious mental illness requiring RTF placement or a history of non response to intensive community-based services.

• Supported Living - The Supported Living programs provide clients with low-cost housing and the associated psychosocial suppport services that allow the clients to maintain semi-independent living.
