Residential and psychosocial services for adults with psychiatric disabilitiesDonate now

The Community Living Center is a psychosocial program designed to provide a friendly and supportive environment where individuals with a psychiatric disability can engage in social interaction with peers and find new ways to access natural community supports. Services in the Community Living Center program are client-centered to meet the goals, hopes and dreams of participants. Individualized services and skill groups are focused on recovery and are developed to increase independence. Program activities include: advocacy, outreach, peer-support, symptom monitoring and management, educational programs/speakers, a computer lab, and outings to explore community resources. Many of our activities promote physical wellness as well. Several days a week clients work out at the Westport Y, other days the Community Living Center holds a walking club and a gardening club.  Many clients enjoy walks on the beach or nature trails at Earth Place in Westport.  In addition to wellness activities in the community, Keystone is able to offer a client run Tai Chi group, a fitness group with a certified fitness instructor and a staff run yoga group.  CLC began a client-run GED preparation group with several clients prepared to pursue the GED exam, and a new computer class has begun as well.  Ultimately, services focus on providing the skills and supports required for clients to remain in the communities of their choice.
