Community and Specialty Services

Far-Reaching Community Supports

Our community and specialty services address a wide range of behavioral health and social needs, including mental health and addictions needs for our severely mentally ill (SMI) adult population, housing needs, relationship and health education for adolescents, wraparound community support and services for youth with intensive mental health and behavioral needs, and residential treatment for high-risk female adolescents.

Adult Community Based Services

Adult Community Based Service Programs’ purpose is to provide collaborative, integrated care for both mental and physical health needs, with a primary focus on mental health needs. Our team centers on treating adult individuals with a Severe Mental Illness (SMI) from a person centered, rehabilitative lens. We provide therapy, case management, peer recovery services, and skills development. Our primary service includes skills development, a focus on rehabilitation and education of symptoms of mental health disorders, and independent living skills. We also work closely with primary care providers, mental health prescribers, and other community partners to provide the highest standard of care. We strive to help our clients and patients creatively overcome a variety of barriers while working between disciplines for better and more holistic outcomes.

Adult Community Based Services are provided throughout Johnson and Marion County.

Homeless Resource Team (HRT)

The Homeless Resource Team (HRT) is funded through various grants/contracts.  The common thread of these programs is homelessness, either current or in the past.  The overwhelming majority of individuals served by this team are individuals who are considered literally homeless, meaning that individuals are living on the streets, in a homeless shelter or in a place not meant for human habitation. 

The focus of projects can vary depending on grant funding, but resources often assist individuals with severe mental illness (SMI) and/or substance use disorders (SUD) who are experiencing homelessness, veterans experiencing homelessness, or unsheltered individuals with high vulnerability.

Youth Development

The Youth Development program provides education, support, and linkage to resources to youth in the community ages 12-24.  We follow the youth development model which focuses on engaging youth in positive interactions, supporting healthy growth and development, supporting healthy relationships, providing sexual health education and linkage to health care, supporting youth voice and choice in programming, and advocating for youth voice in the community.  Facilitators will teach out youth development curriculum in various community settings, assist with all grant needs, prep youth friendly curriculum and materials, communicate with community partners, engage in ongoing education, and collaborate with team members to continue to grow as facilitators and stay up to date on youth needs.

Wheeler Women’s Project

The Wheeler Women’s Project program allows for a mental health therapist to be immersed within the walls of Wheeler Women’s Shelter. This therapist meets with women and children where they are located and provides therapy to those in need. This program breaks down many barriers to treatment and allows for the provision of care to those in need, quicker.


High fidelity Wraparound is an evidenced based process that provides a comprehensive, holistic, youth and family-driven way of responding when children or youth experience serious mental health or behavioral challenges. It involves a committed team comprised of family, friends, community members, professionals, and other collaborative supports that develop an individual plan of care. The team creates a plan of care that includes resources, talents, and strengths to address the underlying needs of the youth. The child must be between ages 6-17 years old, live in the community, eligible for Indiana Medicaid, and have two qualifying mental health diagnoses.

To make a Wraparound referral, anyone may either:

  • Call 2-1-1 and ask for assistance to make a “wraparound referral”
