Mission Statement

Continuum of Care, Inc. is a not for profit organization serving adults diagnosed with mental illness, (such as major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder [OCD], post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], borderline personality disorder, etc.) or severe developmental and intellectual disabilities, (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, traumatic brain injury, or seizure disorders).

Description

ontinuum established its roots in the Greater New Haven area in 1966 with the creation of The New Haven Halfway House, its first residential program for persons with mental illness.

From its founding, Continuum has sought to demonstrate that previously institutionalized adults can live meaningful lives in the community with the right support and services. Today, we are one of the largest community housing providers in Connecticut for persons with mental illnesses and substance abuse. Continuum operates 43 licensed group homes, supported and independent living programs, crisis and respite services, and residential case management programs. Our grass roots laid the foundation for the development of a comprehensive array of residential service options for persons diagnosed with mental illness as well as individuals with developmental disabilities.

Our programs are all based in residential settings (homes and apartments) so that people can rebuild their lives in the community rather than in institutions, hospitals, or jail. Continuum serves more than 2,000 individuals annually in various locations throughout Connecticut.
