The Metropolitan Apartment Program (MAP) is a transitional housing program targeting formerly homeless clients who are either mentally ill or dually diagnosed as mentally ill and chemically addicted. Funded by the NYS Office of Mental Health and Medicaid, MAP comprises apartments in Manhattan and the Bronx for 87 clients who can function and thrive in a more independent living environment than a traditional community residence. The mission of MAP is to provide a safe and supportive environment where residents partake of rehabilitation interventions that will assist them in the attainment of their work, social and community living goals. A variety of services are available, including case management, substance abuse groups, money management, daily skills training and recreational activities.
