Residents

When you are experiencing homelessness, getting discharged from the hospital can be a time of great fear and uncertainty, but we want to put your mind at ease and share a little about what you can expect to experience at our care center.

Caring for Body, Mind and Spirit Mind, and Spirit

We are a comfortable, well-managed after care facility whose mission is to give you a safe space to rest so that you can concentrate on healing. We’ll give you a semi-private room and a warm, comfortable bed to sleep in. We’ll provide you with nutritious and delicious meals, tools for good hygiene, rides to your appointments, and the support and encouragement you need to get better. You will always be treated with respect.
