Diane DeRue, vice president/chief of rehabilitation and recovery services at The Counseling Center of Wayne and Holmes Counties, presented a site plan for the Wayne and Holmes County Independent Living Apartments that will be designated for young adults ages 18-26 who have a mental illness.
DeRue said The Counseling Center received a grant from National Alliance on Mental Illness to hire an architect to design permanent, independent living apartments. The final plans include a housing development with 650-square-foot units that have one bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and patio. The units will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified. "Our goal was to build homes specific to fit the needs of individuals with mental health needs. We took into account spatial awareness, for example none of the front doors face each other so it feels like everyone has their own home," DeRue added. She said the materials used are durable products that will remain in good shape after severe wear and tear. "We're going to build them to last a long time," she said. The townhouse-type structures will be built on a piece of land The Counseling Center purchased several years ago across the street from its property and Community Action Wayne/Medina off of Benden Drive. In order to turn the project into a reality, DeRue said she is awaiting funding. The project will cost $1.8 million, with $300,000 coming from the Ohio Department of Mental Health, $750,000 from the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and $750,000 from the Federal Home Loan Bank. Fairfield Homes will be in charge of managing the construction services with LDA Architects handling the design and architectural process. DeRue said her agency found people with mental illnesses were being taken advantage of and getting kicked out by landlords for not knowing how to maintain their living spaces. DeRue said the new living arrangements will help individuals feel more comfortable and safe in their home. DeRue said The Counseling Center is working to get fair-market rent standards for clients so they pay rent based on income. Also, they are seeking grants to help with operating funds. Although 15 units will not fulfill the need entirely for the target population, DeRue said it is a start. With the current housing options maxed out with clients, she said there needed to be another option for young adults who are transitioning out of mental institutions. "There was no more housing and we needed to do something now. This is a priority population for (The Counseling Center) and the Housing Coalition," DeRue said. Each person will be assigned a case manager who will provide wraparound services to help individuals get acclimated to living by themselves, how to budget daily living expenses and how to live in the community. "We want to try and teach them how to live independently and responsibly," said DeRue. "We didn't want to create temporary or transitional housing because then they want to know where they will go in two years." The permanent supportive housing has no maximum length of stay required. Originally, the plan was to build a large apartment building, however, after getting feedback from clients, a town home type building was more suitable, said DeRue. Paul Vernon, architect/urban designer and co-author of "Envisioning Living Environments for People with Mental Illness," helped with the design aspect since he had a unique approach to housing people with mental illness, DeRue added. After the funding is locked in, which should be in the next couple of weeks, DeRue said the plans will be presented to the city Planning Commission. She said the construction should begin in the spring and the development should be complete in six to eight months.
