Ascending to Health Respite Care (ATHRC) is the only organization in the Pikes Peak Region that gives homeless individuals a safe place to recuperate after being discharged from local hospitals. ATHRC offers three programs to help prevent readmissions to the hospital, improve patient recoveries and health outcomes.

The Coalition’s Respite Care program serves homeless persons who have no place to recover after they have been discharged from the hospital. In addition to providing daily visits from nursing staff, patients benefit from a safe, secure, restful environment where they can access supportive services such as housing assistance and treatment programs.
