Fellowship Place’s mission is to serve adults living with mental illness by offering a full range of therapeutic support and rehabilitation services that promote independence, wellness, and a meaningful life. Open 365 days a year, our campus community serves over 750 people annually, the majority of which suffers from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression. Services provided are designed to help increase their stability, self-sufficiency, and help them function at the highest level possible, including help with basic needs, meals, socialization, skill-building groups, case management, job training and career development services, expressive arts programs, computer classes, physical recreation and more. The agency also provides supportive housing for 45 individuals who live in our apartment buildings located near the main campus.
Fellowship Place is committed to helping the mentally ill, their families, and the public realize that with proper treatment and support, people with a mental illness can be successful and contribute to the vibrancy of our community.
