Housing / Employment

One of our many goals at RiverValley is to help our clients become productive members in society by working with our community partners to secure housing and employment. For example, we provide supportive employment opportunities by working with a network of nearly 50 local employers who are willing to hire adult clients with unique emotional or intellectual needs.

We also use our case management system to provide specialized housing and residential settings for adults with disabilities, those overcoming addictions, and those with developmental needs.

Supported Employment

For over twenty years, RiverValley has helped people diagnosed with disabilities find and keep steady employment thanks to our network of community partners.

Individual Placement and Support (IPS)

RiverValley offers a proven approach to supported employment for adults with mental health and/or substance abuse issues wanting to obtain and keep a steady employment in a competitive job market.  This service is offered on an outpatient basis.

Strategic Partnerships

The focus of RiverValley’s strategic partnerships is to enable individuals with disabilities to live and be active in their community by developing, practicing, and improving life skills. These supports are provided by a team that tailors the services to the individual’s wants and needs.

Housing and Urban Development Program (HUD)

HUD offers individuals with severe mental illness the support they need to live as independently as possible. This program is housed in one-bedroom apartment complexes in Owensboro and Henderson.

Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR)

RiverValley’s PASRR process is designed to ensure appropriate placement and services for an individual with a mental health, intellectual disability, or related condition. The goal is to get them placed into an environment that is best for them while effectively meeting their needs.

Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review Specialized Services (PASRR-SS)

For individuals that have received PASRR Level II evaluation and have an intellectual disability or related condition, RiverValley staff works with nursing facility staff and the individual or guardian to build a plan of care with specialized services for the client.
