WHAT WE OFFER

Recuperative care provides medical oversight to homeless individuals recovering from an illness or injury. Combined with housing placement services and case management, recuperative care allows individuals with complex medical and psychosocial needs the opportunity to recover in a stable environment while reducing potential health complications and hospital re-admissions.

HOSPITAL PARTNERSHIP

We recognize and understand the needs of our more than 60 hospital partners seeking the best solutions for the safe discharge of their patients who are without a home.

TEMPORARY HOUSING

Clients discharged to a recuperative care program are less likely to be re-admitted to the hospital within 90 days. We offer semi-private rooms to ensure clients have the privacy and comfort to fully recuperate.

SOCIAL SERVICES

Individuals living on the street face higher rates of mental illness and substance abuse. To support our clients dealing with these challenges, we help them obtain housing, IDs and benefits, and arrange services that may include access to mental health, primary care, rehabilitation and other community resources.

MEDICAL OVERSIGHT

Professional medical staff at our recuperative care sites provide compassionate care to help clients continue their recovery, offsetting the financial impact to hospitals. Clients also receive meals, transportation to doctor’s appointments and case management from a social worker.

BRIDGE HOUSING

Housing and health are inextricably linked. We provide a continuum of care for individuals who are exiting recuperative care and awaiting permanent housing placement.

COORDINATED ENTRY SYSTEM

There should be no “wrong door” for a client who wants to move off the street. We enroll all incoming clients in Los Angeles County’s CES to ensure access to appropriate housing resources.

Homelessness Pandemic

Homelessness is NOT Just a Pandemic Problem

Even before COVID-19, Los Angeles’ issues of homelessness and the housing crisis were deeply intertwined. At a time when rent prices and unemployment rates are at a record high, with more and more families depending on state and federal support to survive, it comes as no surprise that both issues are at the forefront of […]
