About Beacon of Hope House

The Beacon of Hope House is a private, non-profit mental health service sponsored by the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York and operated under a contract from the New York State Office of Mental Health. The Beacon Hope House provides rehabilitation and residential services to mentally ill adults in New York City. Facilities are located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. All together the Beacon has accommodations for almost 350 people. The facilities cover the range of care offered under the New York State Community Residence Program system. There are supervised residences in both Staten Island and the Bronx, intensive supportive as well as supportive apartment programs in both Brooklyn and Staten Island. In the Fordham section of the Bronx, there is a special, supervised facility devoted to the deaf mentally ill. The Beacon of Hope House prides itself on providing clean, well kept, and efficiently managed residences. The basics of food, clothing, and shelter are provided by a caring staff whose functioning is closely supervised by a professional management team. Residents are asked to play an active role in all facets of daily life. Socialization, recreation, and community life skills programs are available to enhance the opportunities for residents' growth and development. The range of participation in all activities is designed to fit the needs and abilities of the individual. The Beacon of Hope House is committed to providing the best case management services available in the community. This commitment is carried out by extensive communication both among Beacon's own staff, as well as with psychiatric, medical, vocational, and other rehabilitation services relevant to the needs of the individual. This process is monitored by rigorous Agency requirements for case conferences, family involvement, and record keeping. Together, these efforts combine to form a carefully managed network of care developed to maximize the growth of residents. At the Beacon of Hope House there is a major emphasis on staff training and development. This ensures, from a number of perspectives, that the residents are constantly availed a high level of concerned involvement from Beacon Counselors and Case Managers. This training covers such issues as counseling the mentally ill, supervision of medication, crisis prevention, and techniques of group process, among others. Training takes place as a complement to ongoing supervision, under an administration whose emphasis is on mature and productive staff-recipient interaction. The Beacon of Hope House's resources go far beyond its own facilities. The sponsorship of the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York affords a wide array of additional services for the benefit of both residents and staff. The New York State Office of Mental Health likewise offers an extensive range of activities, facilities, services and other resources. Close collaboration with New York State psychiatric centers assures a high degree of support for those in our care. This effective network of people and services greatly enhances the ability of the mentally ill to remain in the community, outside of inpatient care. Yet, should it be necessary, hospitalizations may be facilitated without delay. Additionally, many other services are readily available within this community should they be necessary or desired. The Beacon prides itself on the dynamic array of services which can be made available for its recipients. We are very committed as an organization to helping all of our residents and staff grow toward more meaningful and purposeful involvement with what our society has to offer. We welcome the support of such groups as the Alliance for the Mentally Ill, Association of Community Living, The Coalition of Voluntary Mental Health Agencies and other organizations which are dedicated to foster the development of reliable and effective services to the mentally ill. As one of the largest provider of these services in the New York City area, the Beacon of Hope House is in the forefront of the development and planning of quality care for those in need.
