Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Trinity Group Homes, Inc. seeks to improve the lives of residents diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness in North Idaho by providing life skills training in residential group home settings. We were started in 1979 and incorporated in 1980 by local individuals to provide drug and alcohol free homes where individuals can learn to live independent lives with their mental illness. We maintain four semi-independent group homes in the Kootenai County, Idaho, with 32 individual rooms in all four units, three of which are duplex homes.
Our primary goal is to consistently improve service delivery for people in our community who suffer from mental illnesses. One significant difference in the success of our residents by helping them become self-sufficient for indepe has proven to be our Life Skills Program. We stress and educate our residents to prepare them for independent living, either with Trinity or in the community. We are the only facility in Northern Idaho that provides supported homes. We work closely with the idaho Department of Health and Welfare, the Kootenai County Mental Health Court and with Probation and Parole staff to provide housing for those individuals with mental illness who have felony records.
We strive to educate the community by helping to "de-stigmatize" this tragic disease, as well as promote community awareness for this often-misunderstood group of individuals. Secondarily, we strive to reduce the amount of re-hospitalization and to prevent homelessness among the mentally ill. Our Life Skills program frequently makes a sign
Each resident has a private unit completely furnished and shares living space, kitchen, eating area and bath rooms with between two and four other residents. All residents pay monthly rent and a share of utility costs for electricity and gas. Homes are completely furnished, have cable TV, internet, washers and dryers and a completely equipped kitchen. Each resident has regularly assigned chores in addition to maintaining their personal space clean and orderly.
