OUR COMMUNITY PROGRAM:
Transitional living in Asheville and Tryon fosters independent living skills, supported by CooperRiis live in staff.
We believe that transitional living, our Community Program, is the best choice for gaining independent living. The supportive skills learned come to life in the Community Program; it is where the dreams of our residents continue to take shape, providing them with increasing levels of stability, hope and health, and tools to achieve full community re-integration, self-sufficiency, and engagement. What starts as a dream statement often becomes a tangible, meaningful reality. For some, it means college or full-time employment. For all, it means better coping skills and a healthier approach to everyday living. The CooperRiis Community Program, follows a stay at either of our Asheville or Mill Spring main campuses.
Residents live in furnished, mixed-gender transitional homes with private bedrooms, sharing in household chores, cooking and grocery shopping. The homes are staffed for daily and overnight support and located in Asheville, and the North Carolina Foothills region of Tryon and Mill Spring.
