A place to call home...

Independence Center seeks to provide and cultivate housing to meet the needs of our community. Currently we have two residential care communities, two apartment building, and one senior living complex on the way! In addition, Independence Center proactively seeks relationships with community based landlords to provide independence housing to members in our community.

“In everything we do, we look to not only provide everything a person with a serious mental illness needs to live a healthy quality life – we also work to eradicate the stigma. Every person, regardless of diagnosis, deserves to live with dignity in a safe and affordable home.”

Residential Care Facilities

Dignity & Respect for Every Resident

Each resident has their own apartment – no one has to share space with roommates. We encourage residents to decorate their apartment, care for it, and make it feel like home. Having a place to call your own, that you’ve set up for your own tastes, is an important part of living a quality life. Our staff ensures that each resident enjoys a nice level of comfort and privacy, and lives with dignity and respect.

Our successful housing programs have a consistent 100% occupancy rate.

This 15-unit, 24-hour residential care facility is exclusively for people who have been in the Forensic system and discharged from St. Louis Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center or another state facility.
