About the Stewart Community Home
A place to call home
The Stewart Community Home, inc. is designed to provide safe permanent and transitional housing for adults not capable of completely caring for themselves due to mental illness, as well as, physical or intellectual disabilities. SCH provides a fully staffed kitchen which serves three meals per day and two snacks per day, 7 days a week. SCH also provides a medical stabilization program, life skills training by qualified staff to increase deficits in basic living skills, case management to assess resident needs and link them to services, and necessary transportation to appointments. Each resident is carefully assessed in order to identify their particular needs and increase their potential for success.
The Stewart Community Home, c. 1929, was originally built as the Linwood School. Its name was changed in 1962 to Edwina Wood Elementary. The Stewart Community Home moved into the building in 1994 to support people in the community who are disabled and homeless.
While our building has an incredibly important role as a home to people in need, it is also instrumental to bringing back memories that people connect with this place. We are currently raising funds in our capital campaign to replace the aging, sagging windows of the Home. Help us replace the windows and restore the Stewart Home as it once was so that it can continue to both house and inspire people for many years to come. Ninety years of providing a safe space where children and adults alike have found sanctuary and acceptance is an incredible legacy that should be preserved and cherished.
