InHome Outreach Team

Bonita House Inc.’s Bridges to Recovery In-Home Outreach Team (IHOT) Program provides short-term outreach and engagement to individuals living with serious, untreated mental illness in an effort to link them to behavioral healthcare and other community services tailored to their complex needs.

The IHOT Team uses a trauma informed, sensitive, and culturally responsive approach that considers the client and the family’s pace of change. Family members are prominently included in engagement and planning, and are encouraged to participate in a variety of supports to assist them and their family members, while addressing their own needs and stressors.

The IHOT Team includes the program manager, mental health rehabilitation specialist, peer specialist and a family specialist/coach, as well as other support staff. Their wide range of experiences and perspectives enable them to relate to the clients and families “where they are”, build relationships, and successfully link them to ongoing services and supports.

  • Alameda County residents age 25+
  • Homeless, living in a shelter, in a hospital, or in your own residence, and not already participating in county services
