Transitional Services, Inc. (TSI) embraces a person-centered approach to service delivery. Using the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Approach and Everyday Lives Philosophy, staff assists individuals with the identification of personal strengths, skill building and empowerment. The goal of these efforts is to enable the individual to achieve role recovery--that is, defining and resuming life on their terms. The development of natural supports is also an important focus.
