Housing & Residential Programs

The journey to self-sufficiency and recovery begins with a home. Thresholds is the largest provider of supported housing in Illinois, and our residential programs offer a variety of community-based options for persons with serious mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders, including those exiting homelessness.

Thresholds’ supportive housing portfolio includes:

  • Multi-family apartment buildings
  • Scattered site apartments
  • Supervised and supported group homes

Currently, Thresholds manages more than 75 residential developments in the greater Chicagoland area, totaling approximately 1,000 beds through direct ownership, partnerships, master leasing, and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) homeless grant funding.

A Thresholds residence is far more than mere shelter. Clinical support is available at varying levels, depending on the individual’s needs and choice. If needed, residents are encouraged to develop basic living skills, including diet, money management, wellness, community integration, and more. Many residences also offer opportunities to develop social relationships and friendships through communal living and shared activities.

Thresholds’ housing programs all take pride in being good neighbors and are an asset to their communities.
