Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF).
A licensed 15 bed Class A Semi-ambulatory group home serves adult men diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness, developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injury, and substance abuse.  The CBRF setting provides a stable, long-term living arrangement as well as a place to re-stabilize and prepare to transition to more independent levels of community living.  Residents are encouraged to participate in their own care and to contribute to participating in household duties to the extent that matches their individual goals and abilities.
