Turning Point Community Programs, Welcome Home Housing, and NAMI Sacramento  have partnered to provide services at Abiding Hope Respite House for residents of Sacramento County. The Respite Partnership Collaborative--a public-private partnership of the County of Sacramento Division of Behavioral Health Services, Sierra Health Foundation: Center for Health Program Management, and the community--selected the partners.

Turning Point CEO John Buck said, “Sacramento County has a pressing need for a respite care facility to alleviate the overflow of adults with psychiatric issues at local emergency rooms. Together with our partners we offer a much needed alternative.”

 

 

Abiding Hope Respite House offers a welcoming home-like environment for peer-directed recovery services for adults with psychiatric disabilities who need relief from the stresses of life. 

 

Five beds with a communal kitchen and living area are located in a neighborhood with nearby access to a psych tech/registered nurse, therapist, and psychiatrist to attend to client needs. Referrals may come from emergency rooms, law enforcement, outpatient case managers and shelters.

 

To self-refer, an individual may call (916) 287- 4860 to see if they are eligible for services. Serving between 300 and 400 clients per year, individuals and their caregivers will develop new skills to help cope with future mental health challenges and avoid relapse. NAMI Sacramento will support family and community members and help raise awareness.

Lynn Smith of Welcome Home Housing said, “We are delighted to add a fifth house in Sacramento County to offer a healthy environment for those on the road to recovery.” Begun in 2004, WHH provides housing options for community members with psychiatric disabilities.

 

Sontine Kalba, Executive Director of NAMI Sacramento said, “This contract expands our community partnerships that will help connect clients with vital resources in the community.” Joining the National Alliance on Mental Illness in 1983, they serve over 3,000 people a year offering classes, support groups and an informational help line for those seeking guidance. In April, 2012, 1,500 community members participated in their outreach NAMI Walk.

 

Since 2001, a similar program, Turning Point's Respite at Garden Gate located in Modesto serving Stanislaus County, has provided a safe, comfortable home-like environment for individuals who are homeless and appear to be mentally ill.
