Dave's House is Central Florida's leading provider of affordable permanent support housing for individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) and co-occurring disabilities. Dave's House and Aspire Health work together to help these individuals continue to live in recovery through affordable permanent supportive housing, which is our Dave's House homes. Residents receive ongoing mental health care, life skills development training, access to community resources, and 24/7 crisis intervention and stabilization services if needed. Many of Dave's House residents move on to independent living.
Lin and Ron Wilensky founded Dave's House in 2008 after personally witnessing the positive impact permanent supportive housing made for Lin's brother, Dave Jefferys, who lived with schizophrenia. Dave's House has developed nine single site homes in Orlando and Ft.
