About Genesis Health Services

Genesis Health Services, Inc. was incorporated as a Florida not-for-profit corporation on March 8, 1994 to provide supportive transitional housing for adult males and females seeking recovery from alcohol or other drug abuse.  Such individuals often-times had co-occurring persistent and severe mental illnesses. 

 

This initial period saw a great under-service within the community of the HIV/AIDS population with the above-described recovery needs.  Genesis Recovery Center was the first residential recovery center in Sarasota County targeting and conducting outreach activities to house the HIV/AIDS substance abusers. 

 

The housing program was staffed with a volunteer live-in manager and volunteer counselors.  Total financial support for the program was in the form of residents’ fees assessed on a sliding-scale based upon income.  The housing program was discontinued in 2002 when the need for such housing diminished with the opening of over 200 beds between the years of 1996-2002 by other providers, as well as the lessening of discrimination against the HIV/AIDS population in the allocation of those beds.
