Care For the Homeless opened Susan’s Place, a 180-bed (now a 200-bed) transitional residence with an onsite medical and dental clinic on August 6, 2008. Susan’s Place is dedicated to serving medically frail and mentally ill homeless women, providing them with healthy meals, clean clothing, recreational activities and a broad range of primary health care and social services. Susan’s Place gives these women a safe and supportive environment and the services that will help keep them re-housed after we place them in permanent housing.
To respond to the record-high number of homeless women seeking shelter, Susan’s Place underwent a renovation to create a new dorm to accommodate an additional 20 women. This new dorm is designated for medically frail and elderly homeless women. To ensure that these clients receive the special care they require, CFH created and filled a new position of Medical Case Manager, that is dedicated to ensuring that the medical needs of the clients are adequately considered and addressed in their search for permanent housing in the community.
Despite the economic challenges of the current recession, Care For the Homeless is committed to helping the increasing number of homeless individuals who desperately need our health care and shelter services.
