Types of Housing

The Residential Services program is the largest housing program for people who have mental illness and substance use disorders in the Nashville area. Our staff understands that many people have difficulty maintaining housing, so comprehensive support services are offered to residents to meet those challenges. Three types of housing are offered:

  • Independent Residential- permanent and affordable houses or apartments
  • Supported Residential- supervised living in a group setting with staff on duty 24 hours a day (separate male and female houses)

Homeless Shelter for Women (Safe Haven)

In pursuit of more cost-effective, sustainable housing models, Park Center will be phasing out the Safe Haven program and is no longer accepting referrals to this program, effective March 1st, 2019. All current residents will continue to be supported for the duration of their time in the Safe Haven program.

The Campbell House (former site of the Safe Haven program) will continue to be a part of Park Center's programming. The Campbell House will undergo much-needed renovations and become the new home to Park Center’s Supported Residential program for women. Once this move is completed, the current Women’s Supported Residential home will also undergo renovations before becoming the new home to the Men’s Supported Residential program.

This will result in a more recovery-friendly environment for both programs, as well as an increase of over 800 square feet of space for the men.
