Mission Statement


We believe in our residents even when they may not believe in themselves, and we stretch to do all that we can to make it possible for individuals, whose lives are impeded by mental illness or emotional distress, to develop their capacities for creativity, wholeness, relationship and optimal health, so that they can achieve their highest levels of fulfillment and functioning and respond productively to their future challenges and opportunities for growth.

Description


A. Don and Lisbeth Riis Cooper first envisioned and then opened CooperRiis on June 15, 2003 as a healing farm community in beautiful Western North Carolina where individuals with mental illness and emotional distress learn new ways for improving functioning, gaining independence and attaining fulfillment in life through a comprehensive recovery-based program that addresses mind, body and spirit. B. They built a Board of Directors and formed CooperRiis, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, which functions privately, operating under North Carolina licensure. C. Services are provided to voluntary residents, who agree to participate in the CooperRiis program, being funded by fees paid by their families, themselves and resources provided by foundations and individual donors. D. Don, Lisbeth and the Board have raised almost $19 million to build and endow CooperRiis and have carefully guided the construction of safe and beautiful facilities, which give CooperRiis a warm home-like environment for residents and staff alike.
