(RAFT)

Overview

RAFT fills a vital community need for seniors who require intensive specialized mental health services.  It makes it possible to discharge seniors from Piedmont and Eastern State Hospitals to closer-to-home, less restrictive Northern Virginia nursing home and assisted living facilities.  In addition, RAFT seeks to divert seniors in Northern Virginia from being admitted to state hospitals by placing them in a Northern Virginia nursing home or assisted living facility.  

RAFT is a Virginia State, Region II program managed by Arlington County Senior Adult Mental Health Services.  It is funded by a grant from the state of Virginia and a Federal Block Grant.
