Clay Street House, San Francisco

Established in 1996, Clay is specifically designed for individuals leaving long-term institutionalization who need the support of a transitional program before moving on to more independent living. Clients living in institutional settings are often allowed to exercise very little power to make decisions about their lives and have few opportunities to learn and use life skills to increase their independence. Institutions have historically been a place to warehouse people, not a tool to encourage recovery and rehabilitation. Clay is a year-long program where clients can unlearn institutional behaviors while building their skills and support network.
