Mission Statement

The mission of Karis Community is to provide a transitional community living opportunity for restoring basic life skills and improving the social well-being of individuals recovering from serious and persistent mental illness.


Karis Community uses a community-oriented approach that enables adults (21 or older) managing serious and persistent mental illness to restore basic life skills, improve relationships and social well-being, and transition to independent living. Following WWII, Great Britain discovered that veterans experiencing Post-traumatic Stress Disorder were able to find significant recovery in communal environments. This approach helped shape Karis' therapeutic community model. Karis serves over 100 individuals each year, including Community Members and the Alumni Group. At Karis, our work lies at the intersections of mental illness, trauma, and substance use. Recovery goals typically include reducing symptoms, learning coping strategies, developing life skills, and restoring the capacity to engage in healthy relationships with others.
