A Ministry of Healing

“Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the LORD delivers him; the LORD protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The LORD sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.”
– Psalm 41:1-3

Healing Hearts & Minds

Joseph’s Home’s medical respite model fills a service gap between hospital and shelter. We serve people experiencing homelessness who are ready to be discharged from a hospital but too frail to recover on the streets or in shelters. The goal of respite care is to stabilize homeless patients’ medical conditions so they can transition safely to self care.

Transforming Lives

Once residents leave Joseph’s Home, they can stay connected and continue to receive support through a robust alumni program that includes hundreds of graduates from over the years. Joseph’s Home encourages alumni to stay connected through intensive follow-up via in-home visits, telephone calls, mail and other forms of continuous contact. Constant connection with alumni ensures effective long-term impact.

Inspiring Action

You can help heal lives! Your financial and in-kind gifts to Joseph’s Home will help men without resources heal and recover. A contribution of any amount will help provide safe shelter, nourishing meals, nursing care, transportation to medical appointments, and a wide range of social services and supportive programming tailored to the unique needs of each resident. Donate online today.

Support Medically Fragile in Need During the COVID-19 Pandemic

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have remained open and at the ready to stand with those in need and serve our community.

We understand that these are uncertain and concerning times for you. Please know that we see you as part of our team—we are in this together.

We humbly ask you to give what you can during this difficult time to help. Any amount you can give will ensure that Joseph’s Home continues to provide the vital services our men need to stabilize their health and attain permanent housing.
