Apartment Treatment Program
The Apartment Treatment Program is a transitional residence treatment program designed to facilitate movement to the resident's permanent housing choice. Some apartments are located at a main complex in Niagara Falls, adjacent to staffing offices, for more intensive support and structure. Additional apartments are available throughout the community for those needing less support. For more information, please contact 716.285.3403 x. 2275.
Single and double units are available in both on-site and community settings. In addition, two handicap accessible double units are available. Staffing is provided 14-16 hours per day with 24 hour on-call availability, while a Security Guard/Housekeeper is on-site from 11 p.m. - 7 a.m.
The program is certified by the New York State Office of Mental Health as a Supportive Apartment Treatment Program.
The program fits within the agency's Mental Health Housing Services, often as an initial step toward independent living.
