Following a hospital stay or surgery, your doctor may tell you to get "plenty of bed rest". For a major surgery, you may stay home for a week or two to fully recover.
If you are homeless, this is next to impossible.
Imagine how difficult it is to get a good night's sleep on the ground. How well can you rest when you have to pack up your belongings and move every day or two? How clean can you keep your bandages when living outside?
The Pathways Home will be a Medical Respite Center where homeless individuals can stay during their recovery.
We will have on-site nurses to ensure all clients have access to proper care during their recovery, as well as case managers to help clients apply for permanent housing.
We hope to open the Pathways Home by Winter 2020.
Pathways to Housing would not be here without your tax deductible donations.
Donations will help us bring disabled and medically fragile homeless individuals off the street to heal - inside and outside.
