These programs have both single-staffed and multi-staffed locations. Residents of the PSRB are referred by the Psychiatric Review Board (PSRB) and have involvement in the criminal justice system. Residents at these programs are typically high functioning individuals who need minimal supervision to ensure completion of household tasks and meal preparation. Staff help with dispensing medication, ensuring safety of residents, providing support and guidance, and education around ADLs (activities of daily living), including nutrition and exercise. Residents work through a level system that corresponds with increasing independence and responsibility. They often participate in skills training and therapeutic support groups at an outpatient clinic setting. In addition, they are provided support with vocational rehab and finding jobs or volunteer work. They reside at the program before transitioning into independent or semi-independent living.
In addition to these programs, there are also two Respite Programs. One is located in Tigard and the other in Gresham, Rockwood area.
