The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from qualified proposers to provide a LDH Licensed, Shelter care Group Home located in LDH Region 2 for the severely/persistently mentally Ill (S/PMI) adult male population with an array of services to clients discharged from ELMHS. Services shall include: 24 hour supervision with a 1:10 ratio, 1 staff to 10 clients, from 8:00AM - 5:00PM and a 1:20 ratio, 1 staff to 20 clients, from 5:00PM – 8:00AM. Other services are community groups, independent living skills (meal preparation, shopping, household chores), crisis services, medication monitoring, and transportation to appointments, recreational outings and other social activities for adult males with severe and persistent mental illness. A contract is necessary to provide services for a less restrictive housing option for the patients of Eastern Louisiana Mental Health System with severe and persistent mental illness who are ready for discharge and will require more supervision than regular housing or PSH. The primary objectives for the group home are to provide safe housing with supervision, to promote the development of skills necessary to live, socialize, be productive in the community, and ultimately to transition the person to more independent housing when appropriate.
