SOLEDAD — Interim Inc., a nonprofit mental health agency, will host an open house this week to acquaint the South Monterey County community with its new location and services available in Soledad.

On Wednesday, Feb. 28, the agency is inviting the community to meet its staff and tour the new office at 2149 H Dela Rosa Sr. St., Suite 203, from 11 a.m to 12:30 p.m. Refreshments will be provided, and tours will be available in English and Spanish during the open house.

Interim Inc. is the largest provider of housing and support services serving adults living with serious mental illness in Monterey County.

“Historically, Interim’s staff have been based on the Monterey Peninsula and Salinas area,” the agency stated in a news release. “Staff had to travel to South County to provide services, and clients in South County would have to travel to the Peninsula to receive them.”

With the new office space, staff from three of Interim’s programs will be permanently placed in the Soledad location: the Keep It Real, MCHOME and ACT programs. Other programs will be able to use the office space to better serve South Monterey County residents as needed.

The Keep It Real program offers community-based harm reduction support services for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders who are in recovery. The MCHOME program is a homeless outreach program that serves adults living with mental illness.

The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program assists and provides services to adults with serious and persistent mental illness in the community where they live. ACT serves individuals who are not easily engaged in services, and who have used in-patient mental health services, but are not engaged in ongoing treatment in the community.
