The Renaissance Manor is the only facility in Sarasota County with a limited mental health license as part of its ALF providing the level of service that we provide. Other agencies do not provide a similar service.
Communty Assited & Supported Living collaborates with the Sarasota County Sherrif's Office, Coastal behavioral Healthcare, Centerstone, Sarasota County Health Department, First Step, Mental Health Community Centers, Salvation Army, Bayside Center, Resurrection House, Indigo Healthcare, Homeless Coalition, Lutheran Services, and private practitioners in Sarasota Community which provide a client choice driven model while eliminating the duplication of psychiatric, medical, or psychotherapeutic services.
We familiarize ourselves with their programs and how to access them. By doing so, this has made it much easier and less stressful for the client. While we do not necessarily have written contracts with these agencies, we utilize and refer to their services on a daily basis.
CASL utilizes volunteers to provide additional services such as pet therapy, AA, NA, as well as transportation services. A significant number of Community Assisted alumni want to give back to our programs and are involved in 12 step fellowships and work directly with residents as sponsors.
