Coupled with our day program we also offer a domiciliary shelter program for up to twenty-eight males who are homeless for reasons relating to their substance use/abuse/addiction. On assessment, these potential clients know that accepting to be part of our domiciliary shelter program also entails making a commitment to be active participants in our day program for no less than three months.
Domiciliary clients are not permitted to leave the grounds for the first three months after admission, except for legal or medical reasons and on approval by staff. In addition, domiciliary clients are not permitted to invite guests to the premises or make any phone calls in the first month after admission. At the discretion of staff, following successful completion of the day program, formerly homeless clients who have been sheltered at Vitanova and wish to return to work or school may continue to live on-site until they have the financial means to house themselves.
