Supported Residential Housing Facilities—AHS owns and operates residential properties which include independent living apartments, independent congregate living facilities, and 24-hour supervised Supportive Living Facilities (SLFs). SLFs provide a safe living environment to aid those individuals who have been discharged from psychiatric hospitals and who might not be quite ready for living on their own in the community. AHS housing staff and case managers visit the independent living properties on a regular basis to monitor the progress and ability of residents in maintaining their independent living status.
