Martha’s Village and Kitchen Homeless Recuperative Care program is designed specifically to care for homeless individuals who do not have a place to recuperate after hospital discharge. This program ensures that patients will have a place to stay off the streets to recover and prevent returning to the emergency room. The program’s mission is to end homelessness through the expertise of Martha’s Nursing and Program Staff to establish medical stabilization and to provide essential housing wraparound services that include client-centered education and permanent housing options.
Referral Process & Eligibility Criteria
Referring medical agencies may submit a referral for a homeless client via email or in person. The client will then be accessed by Martha’s Registered Nurse and determine the clients’ eligibility to access the program. Once it is determined that the client is able to complete all required activities independently, Register Nurse will coordinate the client’s admission to the Recuperative Care Program if eligible.
