Fayette Street

The purpose of the Fayette Street Housing Program is to provide safe, affordable and supportive housing to nine (9) Riverbend consumers who are in need of these services. Residential staff provide functional support services to the consumers at this residence for sixteen hours a day.  There is no overnight supervision. The program is intended to assist consumers who, in the absence of functional support services, might otherwise be at increased risk of homelessness and institutionalization. The first floor offers accessibility for persons with disabilities. The building is located in the community of downtown Concord, promoting normalization for consumers living at this residence

All residents must agree to participate in “Step-Up”, a program designed to promote independence, healthy interpersonal relationships, healthy living and residential stability.  The overall goal is to enhance recovery skills by supporting individual’s efforts towards their growing independence, confidence and comfort in their surrounding community

Fayette is accessible to all, caffeine free and non-smoking, but does have a designated outdoor smoking area. Staff is present in the residence sixteen (16) hours each day to assist residents in completing Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and to work together on each individual’s treatment plan and goals through supervision and verbal cues.
