Type of Supervised Residential House:

Transition / Diversion

    The Skylar House is a beautiful home nestled in the farming community of Bangham located in Cookeville, TN.  It has been newly renovated to house 14 individuals of both genders.  The Skylar House is arranged on a beautiful scenic lot offering a sense of peace and serenity.  The home is located within a short driving distance of the city limits offering access to many fun filled activities.

This level of supervised housing is utilized as a transition from the hospital setting to a lower level of housing, such as supervised residential.

To be eligible for this level of housing a member would have to have failed other supervised settings of some type in the past and require supervised residential for support and compliance. 

It is also utilized as a diversion from hospitalization when a member is requiring a higher level of support due to an increase of mental health symptoms/increase in medical need or is failing a lower level of housing, such as supervised residential.

The staffing is greater at this level of supervised housing then supervised residential in that there is a 2:14 ratio of staff to member at all times. There is also a full time RN on staff.
