This seven-bed area allows guests who need it access to bed rest even during the day. Specialized staff assure that guests facing healthcare challenges are linked to the medical and social services they need to move toward a full recovery. The respite shelter combines a stable living environment, access to medical care and case management support into a package that we believe will dramatically improve health outcomes.
