The P.E.E.R.S. For Hope House

An effective, short-term crisis respite program

The person-centered, engaging, empowering, recovery-oriented support (P.E.E.R.S.) for Hope House is a non-clinical crisis respite program where individuals can experience hope, safety and support during a mental health crisis. This voluntary program offers housing and support for up to nine individuals for approximately 3-5 days in a supportive environment in which guests are responsible for their own participation in wellness activities, skill building, meal preparation and self-administered medication.

The program offers adults experiencing a mental health crisis another alternative to traditional hospitalization to help individuals re-integrate into their communities as quickly and effectively as possible. The P.E.E.R.S. for Hope House believes that recovery is a unique, personal journey undergirded by hope, self-actualization, coping skills, social inclusion, supportive relationships, healthy attachments and meaningful life roles.
