90 days – however case by case it can be extended.  The goal is self sufficiency in 90 days.  Some good reasons for extensions would be wait lists for other housing programs, interstate compact, financial stability.  We also do have other long term supportive housing options.

There are several ways.  In prison – the case manager (CPO or COIII) will initiate the application process, typically 6 months prior to release.  Potential residents can also be referred by their parole and probation officer through various programs- talk to them about wanting to come to ViVRE.  Self referrals are also possible by calling our self-pay intake coordinator Ryan at 602-394-0961.  You may also write to ViVRE PO Box 44701 Phoenix, AZ 85064

All intakes are based on availability, which changes often.  We don’t discriminate and are all about giving men and women a second chance in life,  so there are only a few restrictions due to statute and insurance.  We cannot accept sex offenders, arsonists or those with seriously violent histories in our programs.

It is apartment style living- we have the basics provided, sheets, blanket, hygiene box, food is also provided in phase 1 (until employment is secured).  Allot of residents like to bring their own hygiene, their own blanket and pillow, you do have food storage space.  You may bring a small alarm clock, a reasonable amount of clothing, food a bicycle, laptop or even a vehicle if you have a license and registration/ insurance proof.  Due to limited space you may not bring  a TV, excessive belongings or alcohol based products.  A full list of items not allowed are gone over during intake.

Yes it is 8 pm upon intake until stability is reached and maintained.  The elements of stability include- gainful employment, zero balance of fees, adherence to rules of program (and parole/ probation supervision if applicable) maintaining sobriety, helping out with chores, etc.  This also results in phase up of program which allows for a later curfew and the potential for an overnight pass.  The goal is stability and sobriety.

Not necessarily.  We understand that housing is an immediate need and that homelessness compounds triggers of substance use disorder.  Therefore we have developed a smartfocus entry into our program.  It allows someone to access public detoxification (through our partnership with CBi at no cost to the end user) if detox isn’t needed and you are positive for a substance then we will help you get the necessary medical clearance (including transport to and from the detox) before starting the program.

For everyone’s safety the only visitors allowed (after initial intake)  are residents, staff and public officials.  Verifiable case managers are also allowed to staff in our offices with you.

 No – we partner with licensed agencies who can provide  these services.  We only provide quality structured sober living.  We can connect you with almost any resource that is needed.

Fees are different by specific program.  But generally unless referred by a parole/ community corrections officer (CCO) the fees must be paid for the week in advance by Sunday close of office.  Our residents in supportive long term housing fee payments are generally made monthly.
