NAMI / Habitat Housing

Habitat for Humanity Housing for Persons with Mental Illness.

One of the most important ingredients in recovery from major mental illness is access to quality housing. Given that reality, in 2006 and 2007, NAMI Athens cooperating with Habitat for Humanity, NAMI Ohio, the 317 Board, Ohio University, and the Federal Home Loan Bank constructed a wheel chair accessible house in the Plains for Robin Brigante. It is hoped that this one will only be the first such dwelling to be erected in our area.
