New Recuperative Care Shelter Now Open!

Hope of the Valley's Hope Care Center Now Open!

Recuperative Care addresses the gap in health care for the homeless who are going back and forth between hospitals and the streets. Many homeless patients are in a vulnerable place. They are too ill to return to the streets, where their injury or illness is exasperated, but not ill enough to stay in the hospital. What they need is a “temporary home” where they can rest, be cared for and recuperate.

The Hope Care Center provides that “home” environment where patients are monitored by medical staff while receiving case management from social workers. The goal is to discharge each client from Recuperative Care to Housing.
