ABIDING HOPE is a 7 to 14 day respite facility for individuals 18 years of age and older with psychiatric disability. We provide a shortterm alternative to an emergency department visit, or acute hospitalization for persons experiencing overwhelming stress, which can be alleviated with a brief respite stay. Abiding Hope Respite House is a coed facility that houses a maximum of five clients each day.
To utilize respite services an individual must:
- have a TB clearance
- have 2 weeks of sobriety
- be able to manage their own medication
- not be currently at risk for self harm
- not have a physical disability that affects their mobility
Referrals may come from emergency rooms, law enforcement, outpatient case managers and shelters.
To self-refer, individuals may call (916) 287-4860 to participate in a phone screening to determine if they are eligible for services. We welcome your referrals even when we are at full capacity.
This program is funded by the Sacramento County Division of Behavioral Health Services through the voter-approved Proposition 63, Mental Health Services Act (MHSA)
