Single Room Occupancy (SRO)
Lakeview’s SRO is a 38 bed program located in Ithaca with on-site support specifically targeted to individuals who have had limited success in other housing environments. Each individual has a private room with a bathroom and kitchenette. The SRO provides meals through its kitchen for those who participate in the meal plan. Program staff provide a range of services that include medication management and daily living skills. This program differs from Lakeview’s other residential options in that it does not fall within the traditional rehabilitation model. For this reason, both staff and residents have the ability to create service plans based on quality of life goals that do not necessarily revolve around transition to more independent living.
