St. Columba is a "Safe Haven" for chronically homeless seriously mentally ill men. It consists of 25 semi-private dormitory style beds on the first floor and fifteen single room occupancy units on the third floor. St. Columba's offers a small scale environment for the most vulnerable homeless poplulation, many of whom are oler, physically frail and unable or unwilling to negotiate the larger shelters due to untreated mental health issues sometimes combined with active drug & alcohol use and/or poor physical health. The dormitory beds are for those residents coming directly from living on the streets. The single rooms are for residents that have acquired soem stability with respect to self care, ability to maintain their personal space, paying rent and food fees, and reduced substance use and involvement in activities that promote personal growth and overall well being. The program provides 24 hour staff support, medication monitoring and all meals. Case Managers provide onsite support and referrals to community resources such as mental/physical health servies, drug & alcohol service, education, employment (supported and non-supported), recreational activities and weekly on site nursing services.
