Established in November 2018 in partnership with Wind Youth Services, Possibilities is a HUD funded program that provides a “Transition to Rapid Rehousing” model focusing on transition-age youth, 18-24, who come directly from homelessness. In this program, they receive intensive services including education and employment support, life skills, communication skills, conflict resolution, connection to mental health and substance use disorder service, and much more. Upon completion of the initial six month phase in transitional housing, they will move on to community living with support for up to 18 months. The goal is to immediately link them with good paying jobs and the skill necessary to be self-sufficient adults. This program serves 30 homeless youth each year, many of who identify as LGBTQ+ and/or have spent time in the foster care system. For Hope Cooperative, this is truly a prevention program designed to ensure that young people who have experienced homelessness are not destined for a life of poverty.

The Clubhouse

Since its inception in 2013, Hope Cooperative’s Clubhouse has provided a welcoming space for our members to receive support and encouragement on the road to self-sufficiency and recovery.  Activities are designed to assist members to develop or re-establish skills, attitudes, personal characteristics, interpersonal skills, work behaviors and functional capacities to achieve and maintain positive employment outcomes.  A full-time supported employment specialist works with each member in applying for, securing, and keeping employment in the community. By coming to the Clubhouse and participating in a structured day in which they focus on meaningful work, members regain an order and rhythm to everyday life, discover or recover interests and strengths, and develop a sense of self-confidence in their ability to accomplish things.

Hope Cooperative RST Program

The Regional Support Team (RST) is contracted with the Sacramento County Division of Behavioral Health Services to provide outpatient mental health treatment to qualified beneficiaries of the Sacramento County Mental Health Plan who reside in the north-eastern part of Sacramento County. Our multidisciplinary team of experienced clinicians, case managers, peer and family advocates, nurses, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals and paraprofessionals are committed to a client-driven approach to services, ensuring that our clients’ individual goals and cultural needs inform all aspects of client care.

The RST offers an array of services including:

Psychosocial Rehabilitation
Medication Management
Case Management
Support with Substance Use Disorder
Group Counseling
Crisis Intervention
Employment Readiness
Benefit Assistance
Housing Support

In addition, the RST’s Community Care Team is able to engage clients in the community, particularly when a client’s mental health symptoms are proving to be a barrier to that client getting fully connected to the range of services that we offer.

The length of treatment at the RST may vary greatly from client to client, and is dependent on the specifics of each individual’s needs and treatment plan. We find that after consistent engagement with the RST treatment team many of our clients are no longer in need of the Specialty Mental Health Care level of service. In these instances we work to connect these clients with another provider that will be able to appropriately meet their needs.

A referral is required for the RST. Referrals are managed by the Sacramento County Access Team at: (916) 875-1055.

Please call 916-485-6500 if you’d like to find out more about the RST Program
