Joseph’s Home is a provider of recuperative care and temporary shelter for medically-fragile men experiencing homelessness. As such, our organization is exempted from the Governor’s “stay at home” order.
Joseph’s Home has been awarded a $5,000 grant from CareSource Foundation to support the facility’s mission of providing medical respite care for Cleveland’s most vulnerable – medically fragile men experiencing homelessness.
Brunswick resident Beth Graham has been named executive director of Joseph’s Home.
In her new role, Graham will be responsible for guiding the facility’s medical respite care for Cleveland’s homeless men and will strengthen programs to help residents on a path toward stable housing and self-sufficiency.

It’s common this time of year for musicians to perform Christmas carols, often visiting people who could use some holiday cheer. A pair of instrumentalists did just that on a recent afternoon at Joseph’s Home, which provides housing and medical care for men in downtown Cleveland.
But the visit was about more than familiar tunes.
One of the first venues to recognize the value of Access Music was Joseph’s Home, a transitional facility near Cuyahoga Community College providing housing as well as healthcare, education, and skills training to homeless men with temporary or chronic illnesses. Already, the home has hosted Access Music three times, each time to a small but lively audience.
Joseph’s Home, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System in Cleveland, is a homeless service provider for men that focuses on medical respite care and has seen many similar success stories over the past two decades.
“Simply put, we’re providing a place for people who are homeless and medically compromised, a place to stay and get well because otherwise they’d be in the shelter and have a poor outcome,” explained Dr. Biscaro, a psychologist.
The holiday season is time of giving and reflection, inspiring many to reach out to those who are in need. Your gifts of time, in-kind donations and financial support are vital to our mission at Joseph’s Home to guide our residents on a path toward a healthy, self-sustainable life. As you celebrate this holiday season, please consider the ways in which you can make a difference in the lives our men.
Many parishes that support Joseph’s Home talk the talk and walk the walk of serving the most vulnerable in our community by sharing the love of Christ. Some even go beyond that call to expand their impact to residents and inspire amazing acts of service and generosity from parishioners. St. Dominic Church in Shaker Heights has been doing just that.
For those dealing with trauma, it is often difficult to discuss or express the events that have shaped their lives. Sometimes the words just cannot be said for fear of reliving the trauma.
As part of the holistic healing process for residents, the vast majority of whom have experienced traumatic events, Joseph’s Home launched a partnership with Ursuline College to provide art therapy.
