OUR WORK

Transitioning from Institutional Care

Thresholds was one of five initial providers selected by the Illinois Division of Mental Health (DMH) in 2012 to provide services to the class members of the Williams Consent Decree. In the first year, we transitioned 40% of the 256 class members that were identified for community reintegration. We assisted these individuals with obtaining a leased apartment in the community of their choice.


Thresholds provides these clients with the necessary supports and wrap-around services needed to achieve successful independence, including nurse care coordination of primary, specialty and psychiatric care, meaningful activity through supported employment and education services, and peer-run drop-in centers for wellness activities and social opportunities.

In 2017, Thresholds celebrated the transition of 1,000 Williams and ensuing Colbert class members since these consent decrees began. Our efforts to integrate members of both classes continues today.
