Benedict Haven provides a permanent supervised home with compassionate care for adults who have a severe and persistent mental illness.
Benedict Haven, a program of Catholic Charities, Diocese of St. Petersburg, is a private non-profit residential treatment facility dedicated to providing the highest quality long-term care for adults with persistent mental illnesses. The home was founded in 1998 by family members, mental health professionals, community leaders, legislators, and local organizations and businesses to fill the void that exists in supervised long-term care for the mentally ill. By following a small “home-like” model, Benedict Haven has ended the “revolving door” cycle previously experienced by its residents.
Our service program includes:
- 24/7 staff supervision
- Medication monitoring
- Nutritious meals and snacks
- Extensive in-house day treatment and activities program
- Case management
- Activities of daily living skills (ADL) training
- Daily outings and weekly special events
In addition to having their own private rooms, residents enjoy the use of our spacious great room, computer room, and meticulously maintained patio and lush garden areas.
Our high staff-to-resident ratio promotes greater focus and more intimate care consistently resulting in positive outcomes including higher levels of resident development and low recidivism rates.
