Homestead Place

homestead placeHomestead Place is a 4 bed, intensive support group home, in northern Chapel Hill, for adults with severe and persistent mental illness. We strive to empower our clients to live life in the least restrictive environment possible, while giving them a feeling of autonomy, safety and belonging.

Residents are active participants in their treatment plan development and work daily on reaching their goals of stabilization, self-care (mental & physical), medication compliance, and independent living skills. Reducing hospital utilization is a cornerstone of our resident’s goal planning.

We achieve this through supportive prevention and early intervention of the first signs of psychological decompensation. We work closely with our residents’ treatment teams to monitor their progress.

Our residents participate in therapeutic, goal orientated day-time activities, including attending Club Nova and volunteering in the community. Residents at Homestead Place assist with meal preparation, shopping, and other activities of daily living. We hope that residents will consider this their home and stay awhile.
