The Philip Dorn Respite Center is a respite care program for homeless adults who are discharging from local hospitals and require medical stabilization services. Respite care refers to recuperative services for those homeless persons who may not meet medical criteria for hospitalization, but who are too sick or medically vulnerable to reside in an emergency shelter and cannot be returned to the streets. Clients are ONLY admitted when discharged from a hospital; walk-ins are not accepted.
This program is a joint effort between the Homeless Program and Health Care for the Homeless.
The primary goals of this and all emergency housing programs are to get homeless persons off of the street; provide comprehensive services to assist persons in finding permanent housing; and provide services that assist each person to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency.
