Fairweather Lodge Program

The Fairweather lodge is a living arrangement designed specifically for persons with mental illness who are active members of society and wish to live independently yet struggle financially to do so. Lodge members share in the day-to-day experiences of running a home and do so more affordably than if they lived on their own. Lodge members create their own house rules and manage their own activities. Lodges are member-managed. Staff assist only as needed and are available in emergency situations. On-site staff is very limited as the goal of the lodge is to promote independent living with minimal assistance.

What are the benefits of living in a Fairweather Lodge?

  • The Lodge provides very affordable group living while respecting one’s personal freedom.
  • The Lodge creates a supportive environment in which residents live, grow and learn from others.
  • The Lodge encourages residents to take part in healthy, decision-making processes.
  • The Lodge offers support at home and on the job as members live and work together.
  • The Lodge ensures members receive adequate mental health services including medication.
  • The Lodge enhances members’ employability by developing social and work-related skills.
