Rockland Community Residences
Orangeburg, New York

The Community Residence program of the Rockland Hospital Guild provides a residential setting for mentally ill clients to transition from institutional to independent living. The existing program was housed in outdated facilities on a psychiatric campus. The new facility contains three residential buildings. Where clients live will depend on their individual abilities. There are two dormitories with 24 hours staffing and a townhouse complex with minimal staffing. This $6.5 million dollar project also includes an office building. The total occupied area is 22,000 square feet on a 5 acre site. Wooded areas were preserved for outdoor recreational activities.
