T he Community Rehabilitation Center (CRC) is a nonprofit social services agency established in 1993 that offers behavioral care, primary care and community economic development services for under-served, low-income individuals with mental illness, substance abuse and HIV/AIDS who live in Duval, Nassau, Clay and St. Johns counties. More than 300 adults and families use Community Rehabilitation Center services at the center, in their adult-living facility, at home and elsewhere in the community every day.
The Community Rehabilitation Center is accredited with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and licensed by the State of Florida Department of Children.
In 2006, the Community Rehabilitation Center branched out into economic development. A thrift shop and a screen print shop provide safe work environments for consumers of the Community Rehabilitation Center or other local social service organizations to integrate back into daily employment.
The Community Rehabilitation Center has become an integral part of the Jacksonville and surrounding communities. Through collaborative efforts with local, state, and federal governments and the private sector, the Community Rehabilitation Center has established a host of partnerships that enhance the quality of life for people who have been impacted by chemical disorders, biological disorders and the economic downturn. The Community Rehabilitation Center will continue to focus on financial sustainability and creating job opportunities, but ultimately and most importantly, making lives whole.
The Community Rehabilitation Center is a member of the Florida Council for Community Health, Emergency Services and Homeless Coalition, National Association for the Mentally Ill, National Alliance on Mental Illness, Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida, National Industries for the Severely Handicapped, and the Northeast Florida Safety Council.
