From Feasibility to Facility: The Journey to Establish a Medical Respite

This workshop will provide an in-depth presentation of the three phases a faith-based community service organization led to establish a medical respite facility and Community of Care for persons who are experiencing homelessness. The three phases include the community partnerships that were convened to 1) complete the feasibility study for the facility; 2) the fundraising and operational funding strategies along with site selection; and 3) the details of finalizing the clinical and social services to be offered along with the partners who were providing the services. It will also be discussed how persons experiencing homelessness were involved in each of the phases.
