Philosophy: A living situation that feels like home is often a primary source of stability and security in our lives. Nest-building is a powerful instinct; most people in the world today spend a great deal of time selecting their dwelling space, customizing and decorating, and establishing rules for relating to neighbors. Unfortunately, mental health professionals have generally overlooked the importance of these factors for people with psychiatric disabilities. Only recently have we begun to recognize that until people’s housing needs are met, other treatment or rehabilitation and interventions are seriously jeopardized.
