CRi Expands Mental Health Services for Adults in Partnership with Loudoun County

CRi is proud to announce its partnership with Loudoun County Behavioral Services to provide Supervised Living Services to adults with serious mental health needs.

Ashburn, VA - March 19, 2024 - CRi, a leading nonprofit organization specializing in supporting adults with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Loudoun County Behavioral Services. This partnership has resulted in a contract for CRi to provide Mental Health Supervised Living Services to up to 10 adults with Serious Mental Illness (SMI).

The program, named Metro Ridge, combines the resources of two neighborhoods in Ashburn, Virginia: Metro Walk and Loudoun Valley/The Ridge. CRi is excited to offer fully furnished condominiums with amenities such as elevators and garages to provide a comfortable and supportive living environment. The program includes a dedicated Program Director and two Qualified Mental Health Professionals (QMHPs), with plans to recruit a third QMHP as more individuals move in.

"We are honored to partner with Loudoun County to expand our services and support more individuals in the community," said Lila Corey, Mental Health Clinical Director at CRi. "The Metro Ridge program reflects our dedication to providing personalized and comprehensive mental health services to promote independence and well-being."

Currently, four people have moved into Metro Ridge, with six more anticipated in the Loudoun Valley/The Ridge neighborhood. CRi's Program Director and QMHPs are already providing essential services to the new participants.

CRi is dedicated to providing personalized resources to youth and adults with mental health needs and developmental disabilities. CRi accomplishes this mission by providing a full spectrum of support services, both in CRi’s homes and apartments and through community programming. Last year alone, CRi supported nearly 1,000 at-risk youth, women and men with mental health needs and/or developmental disabilities, and those who are or might become homeless.

Incorporated in Arlington as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1975, today CRi provides supports in communities throughout Northern Virginia, Greater Richmond, and in Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, and Baltimore, Maryland. To learn more, please visit www.mycri.org.
