Benilde Hall has the capacity to house up to 118 men. Each room is furnished with bunk beds and storage for each client. A room may house anywhere from 4-12 men.
53 beds are designated for Veterans through the Kansas City VA.
After the intake process is complete, each client receives a bedroll including necessary linens and a hygiene kit. Housing includes shower facilities, exercise equipment, and a group room where TV is available when groups are not being conducted. The clients are served 3 meals per day, encompassing nutritional requirements appropriate for an adult male.
Clients are required to be abstinent from substances to remain housed at Benilde Hall. Clients can expect to be randomly tested for drugs and alcohol, and all clients are subject to random room inspections to ensure no prohibited substances are on property.
While Benilde Hall is not a medical facility, there is an RN on staff and medication management is provided.
Benilde Hall is not a locked facility, meaning our clients are free to come and go to work or school, seek employment, and have a social life off property with staff approval.
Participation in group therapy is mandatory, and a variety of subjects are covered throughout the week. Groups are available day and evening to accommodate those who work or attend school.
Every client has an individual treatment plan developed with their counselor based on their unique needs and is updated every 30, 60, and 90 days. The treatment plan focuses on attaining individual outcomes. Progress is based on program participation and length of time in the program at each level. To be considered successfully discharged clients must:
- be abstinent from substances
- have consistent income
- move to stable housing
