Programs

Medical Respite

The Daily Planet’s Community Medical Respite program provides short-term convalescent supervision for adults being discharged from hospital stays or identified in the community as not being able to stay in the emergency shelter system due to medical conditions that warrant a higher level of care. The program houses up to 20 individuals experiencing homelessness for up to 30 days. The program is co-located with our satellite health clinic (Southside Community Health Center), and offers 24/7 supervision, nutritious meals, medical care, health education and case management. The Daily Planet partners with local hospital systems, behavioral health providers, and other community stakeholders to ensure the viability of this program.
