Residential Services

Adult Residential Services

Burrell's adult residential programs work with individuals already receiving Burrell services as well as individuals from the community looking for these types of supportive services. Our goal is to provide rehabilitative and supportive services while teaching independent living skills. We have programmatic requirements and meet each person at their current individualized stage of change. We are Medicaid-based programming but also have a variety of funding sources for each program. All programs and locations are CARF accredited, and located in Springfield, Columbia or surrounding areas.

Intensive Transitional Programs

Burrell’s START Living program provides intensive rehabilitative services to adults with serious mental illness. START is a co-ed facility with the capacity for 11 residents and 24-hour staff coverage. Staff assist clients in learning daily-living activities, taking medications, practicing socialization skills, and accessing community resources. This is a transitional living facility to assist clients in learning the skills necessary to live in a more independent setting.

Cost details:

START Living is funded by rent payments or Department of Mental Health funding; all residents must have Medicaid coverage.

This program, which includes our South Creek Apartment Program, provides on-site staff with 24-hour availability to clients. Clients receive crisis prevention/intervention, medication education, and daily life skills education. Each client has a Community Support Specialist to assist in learning independent living skills such as cooking, cleaning, budgeting, taking medication, etc. while they transition to living independently in the community.

Community Housing

STEPS stands for Supportive Transitional Educational Partnership for Success. Our STEPS program places clients in independent apartments throughout the Springfield community. These are individuals who require intensive support and assistance – but not the structure of the Semi-Independent Apartment Program or Residential Care Facilities. The program has three levels of intervention/assistance: maximum, moderate, and transitional.

Additional supportive housing is available at our Clifton and Catalpa Apartments for low-income persons with psychiatric disabilities, including those with recent histories of homelessness. Residential Specialists are on-site 24/7 to assist clients with crisis management, problem solving, and to monitor client progress toward treatment goals. Community support is provided to the residents to assist with any needs they may encounter while living independently.


Cost details:

STEPS Program participants must have Medicaid coverage; the program utilizes Department of Mental Health funds for rent and other living expenses for clients.

At the Clifton and Catalpa Apartments, which are HUD 811 PRAC properites, 30 percent of household income is applied toward monthly rent. Tenants must pay a move-in deposit equal to one month’s rent and are responsible for their own cable, utilities, and internet service.
