Residency with Open Heart Communities is meant to bridge the gap to living independently. We offer assistance in becoming economically self-sufficient by providing low barrier housing with a variety of resources for life skills and supportive services.

Please ​note ​that ​Open Heart Communities is ​a ​program. ​Living ​in ​Open Heart Communities ​is ​not ​a ​landlord/tenant arrangement ​where ​paying ​rent ​entitles ​the ​tenant ​to ​live ​there. ​It’s ​a ​program ​that ​has ​admission ​policy, discharge ​policy ​and ​requires ​cooperation ​from its ​residents. Our rules, policies, and procedures are in place to ensure client’s safety, health, and overall well-being.
