The CRT will serve a co-ed population with 90% male and 10% female census predicted; all referrals will be persons with justice-involved mental health status. The average length of stay for this program is 14-21 days. The Muriel Wright Recovery Center CRT program is under contract with Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Services Department.

Art, Lida, and Morton believed that clients could achieve better results when they received services that were individualized, focused, and provided in a more home-like setting. They placed the client at the center of the organization and created a culture where employees and clients were supported in reaching their full potential.
Their vision still guides Telecare today and is carried on by Anne Bakar, Telecare's President and CEO, and daughter of co-founder Morton Bakar, who heads up the family- and employee-owned company.
While Telecare has evolved over the years to address the changing needs of the people we serve, our overarching goal remains the same. Our mission is to provide excellent services and systems of care for people with serious mental illness. We exist to help people realize their full potential.
