The Mariners Inn Extended Residency (MER) & Recovery Housing (RH) Programs are alcohol- and drug-free residential environments for homeless men desiring to gain independence. Both programs have the capacity to assist a combined total of 64 adult men with an array of services and special needs.
It is the Housing Program’s philosophy to provide the highest level of professional services to all residents to help them overcome the problem of homelessness and related issues. We seek to address all barriers to independent living and provide an environment that encourages all to achieve their fullest potential.
MER is a permanent supportive living experience available to men who have successfully completed a residential treatment program and who may have a physical or mental disability and/or extraneous barriers than may impede them in finding employment.
MER program has a capacity of 28 beds. All men admitted into the program are allowed to remain for up to 2 years initially. This time may be extended as necessary to further assist the men who need additional time to overcome barriers to independent living. The resident is expected to continue fulfilling the requirements of the program and to demonstrate his commitment to self-improvement.
RH is a supportive, semi-independent living experience available to men who have also successfully completed the Mariners Inn Residential Treatment Program and who are readily employable or have no extraneous barriers impeding employment.
RH has a capacity of 36 beds. All men admitted into the program are allowed to remain for a minimum of six months, up to the two year maximum length of stay. RH offers the opportunity to work on all aspects of an individual’s total recovery. Each individual works on his own specific goals (i.e. his particular way of being self-sufficient) established with the assistance of RH staff.
