Harbor City Unlimited (HCU)
HCU is a non-medical psychiatric rehabilitation and residential rehabilitation program for persons with severe mental illness. The core principle to rehabilitation stems from the recovery model where staff partner with clients to facilitate identification of strengths, goals and potential for growth. Work focuses on helping the individual manage their illness and move forward with their life. Establishing an identity other than having a mental illness is critical to the success of rehabilitation. Frequently identified goals include obtaining a GED (classes available on site), employment and independent living.
