Trinity's Vision
Supportive Services

Since 1979, Trinity Group Homes Inc. has provided housing and supportive services in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, for men and women with major mental illnesses and since 1980, we have been certified as a 501(3)(c) organization. Residents live in duplex buildings owned by Trinity Group Homes Inc. and are group homes. Our staff works with residents on life skills building and development. In addition, Trinity Group Homes Inc. networks with case management service providers to ensure medication compliance and 24-hour crisis intervention, as well as with psychosocial rehabilitation services (PSR). The goal of Trinity Group Homes Inc. is to enable our residents to graduate from our semi-independent group living programs to fully independent community living.

Resident Support and Training

The valuable opportunities Trinity provides to our residents allow many of them to develop vital employment and life skills and enable them to live independent and contributing lives, either as Trinity residents or when they "graduate" to fully independent living in the community. Measures include the following: higher level of social interaction skills, increased sense of pride in their home environment, decrease in isolation, increased mental health coping skills, increased daily participation within the home setting; and improved medication management.

Kinkade Winner

A recent raffle of a limited edition lithograph of Lake Coeur d'Alene by well-known artist Thomas Kinkade raised over $4200 for Trinity Group Homes, Inc. Pictured with the painting are: Julie Welker, Trinity's Life Skills Director; Mark Tucker, Executive Director of United Way of Kootenai County; Jane Brooks of Hayden, raffle winner; and Bob Runkle, Trinity?s Executive Director.

On June 1, Mark Tucker, United Way's Executive Director, drew the winning raffle ticket for a limited edition lithograph of Lake Coeur d'Alene by the well-known late artist, Thomas Kinkade. The lucky and excited winner was Jane Brooks of Hayden.

On behalf of Trinity Group Homes, Inc., we wish to thank everyone who purchased tickets and donated funds. Our special thanks go to former Coeur d'Alene residents Dave and Jamie Ziegler, now living in Colorado, who donated the lithograph. In an odd coincidence, the Ziegler and Brooks families are good friends and had spoken on the phone just the night before Jane's winning ticket was drawn.

The raffle raised over $4200 for Trinity. The reserve fund created with these raffle proceeds will allow Trinity to respond to future facility project needs in our seven homes. Trinity is a non-profit organization which is funded solely by residents' rent payments, grants and donations.
