Stamps donated to annual Adult Services Spring Fling

As we count down the days until our Meson Project’s annual event Spring Fling, we’re excited to announce that Sarah Kathryn of Creatiate has donated four wonderful stamps as well as two pads of ink in innovative colors and fun shapes! We are so grateful to have her support as we celebrate the work our adult residential clients do every day.

Our goal for our residential adult clients is to enable them to thrive in a supportive and therapeutically appropriate environment. Child Guidance Resource Centers’ Meson Residential Program (TRY) lasts 10-48 month and is most appropriate for adults ages 18-25 with mental illness. We provide a safe and comfortable living space where our clients can acquire the skills necessary to live as independently as they can in the community of their choice. Ultimately, we believe our clients can use their strengths and coping skills to live in a less restrictive residential setting.

Our other program, the Meson Specialized Community Residential Rehabilitative (SCRR) Program, is a long-term community residential service for adults over 18 years with a history of institutionalization and/or pervasive mental illness. The long-term and unlimited residency program focuses on helping clients transition from their previous residence into the new setting by building and maintaining their own identity within the residential living community. SCRR maximizes community opportunities for disabled adults to manage their lives in a caring, empowering environment by providing all basic needs including shelter, meals, food shopping, laundry facilities, medication monitoring, socialization, transportation, and environmental safety.

The goal of both our residential programs is to allow our clients to gain self-appreciation and self-esteem as they transition into adulthood. We provide a learning environment that enables our clients to better handle anger, problem-solve, resolve conflicts, and other techniques that will help them live successfully within their community.
