Housing project

Green Door has a distinguished record of providing affordable housing for people with severe mental illness. For 25 years, we have helped members in all phases of their recovery to secure stable, pleasant, affordable housing. We have developed an extensive and constantly expanding housing program that meets the quality and economic needs of our members. Most Green Door housing units are subsidized so that they are affordable to our members.

Green Door provides a variety of housing to meet our members’ preferences and needs:

  • Some people like to live alone.
  • Some people like to live with a roommate.
  • Some people want to live like a family in a house or apartment with many individuals.
  • Some people need or want services in their homes, such as substance abuse counseling and treatment, senior services, or medical treatment.

Green Door provides housing that fits all of these needs.

Supported Housing:

Members live on their own or in a group, and receive support from Green Door staff, as needed.

Staffed Housing:

Members live in a home as a group. Members in this type of housing get help learning how to cook, clean, shop for groceries on a budget, and get along with others, as needed.

Community Residential Facilities:

Members live in a home as a group with Green Door staff providing 24-hour counseling, supervision, and training. Members in this type of housing also get help learning how to cook, clean, shop for groceries on a budget, and get along with others. This housing is designed for members who require a high level of care.

Specialty Housing:

Green Door has housing for members who are seeking support to become clean and sober. We run substance abuse support groups in our specialized housing and take our members to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. We also have housing specifically for our senior members or those members who have special health needs.
