Welcome to Our Own Home!

Established in 2006 as an independent, not-for-profit corporation located in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

History

Our Own Home’s mission is to educate, advocate and provide opportunities to achieve life goals for housing, employment and independence to individuals with mental health and intellectual developmental disabilities.

Mental illness is the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain. This can lead to anxiety disorders, major depressions, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. Beethoven, Winston Churchill, Vincent Van Gogh, and Isaac Newton all suffered from mental illness.



Our Goals


To foster recovery for persons with disabling mental illness so they can enjoy a fulfilling life in the regional community and live with other individuals in a home they call their own.

To provide and maintain safe and comfortable housing to support this goal.

To offer vocational and educational services as well as structured employment opportunities that foster independent living skills and reintegration into the local community.

To partner with other mental health agencies which have similiar housing or recovery-based missions to advance and expand existing services.
