Types of Housing

Our 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. Two levels of housing are offered:

  • Independent Residential- This program is designed for individuals who have severe mental illness and are able to live independently with little to
    no assistance. Housing includes 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom houses or apartments. Staff checks in 2x a month and provides weekly trips to the grocery store and community outings (i.e. parks, movies, etc.)
  • Supported Residential- This program is designed to help adults who have severe mental illness learn the skills needed to transition to
    independent living. Staff provides individualized coaching and education on cooking, cleaning, and hygiene. Staff is on duty 24/7. Each individual shares a bedroom with one person (separate male & female houses). Certified Psychiatric Rehabilitation Practicioner (CPRP) staff lead recovery groups in the homes.

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.
