Description:

The Haywood Street Respite (HSR) opened in January 2014 and now serves up to eight homeless adults at a time. HSR is a acute care program. HSR provides a safe place for those individuals to rest, recover and stabilize following discharge from the hospital for up to two weeks. It is short-term care in a home-like setting for those who are too ill or frail to recover on the streets but no longer sick enough to be hospitalized. Each participant has a safe place to rest 24 hours a day; 3 meals a day; transportation to/from healthcare appointments; and assistance accessing needed services and supports such as housing, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, disability advocacy, and food stamp application. Linkage to a primary care medical home is made for each guest as
needed. Admission into the program is on referral from local hospitals and doctor offices. HSR is a part of Haywood Street Congregation.
