            Donate toiletries and comfortable clothing to help them feel at homeThe Medical Respite offers 8 beds, meals, care, and support for patients.

            At the Medical Respite program, Depaul partners with PHMC to provide recuperative care to homeless individuals who have been discharged from local hospitals. Depaul provides case management and residential services in this short-term program so residents can heal and move on to more stable housing. 

            Homeless adults are hospitalized more frequently than those in the general population and often require longer inpatient stays; however, their lack of a stable home environment diminishes the long-term effectiveness of their hospital care. This often results in hospital readmission and lack of follow up treatment for chronic conditions. The Medical Respite, the first program of its kind in Philadelphia, aims to stop this cycle by providing nursing care, health education, connections to primary care and case management to address housing needs.  

            Nearly all of the residents of the Respite Program have chronic conditions in addition to the acute condition that brought them to the hospital. Only half have health insurance and nearly half are chronically homeless. Depaul and PHMC staff work with residents to identify specific tasks that can be completed during their residency at the program. These include housing applications, obtaining identification, disease management and education, connections to primary care and other community services. 

            Of clients who participate in the aftercares program, 63% report not returning to the emergency room for at least 3 months following discharge from the respite. 

            In our first year of operation, 90% of patients were connected to primary care by discharge.
            Seventy five percent of clients moved to more stable housing.

            Many of our residents have lost all of their belongings when they are transported to the emergency room and arrive to the program with only the clothes on their backs. Donate sweatshirts and pants, flip-flops and toiletries to help them feel more at home.

              Program Coordinator Sister Judy Warmbold (312) 802-9703 or judy.warmbold@depaulusa.orgIndividuals in the program can get counseling, access to resources, and support needed to reach graduation

              Homelessness on college campuses is a widespread phenomenon. The issue of homelessness among DePaul University students was highlighted by the DePaul University Dean of Students Office at the Fall 2014 Vincentian Family Gathering in  Chicago.  2014.  It was estimated that there are approximately 50 homeless students every quarter due to a variety of reasons.  The Chicago Vincentian Family created the Dax Host-Home Program  to respond to this need.

              Some homeless students are reeling from the loss of a job or scholarship.  Others leave home because of family issues such as domestic violence, abuse, addictions, divorce, gender issues, and disputes and disagreements.  Whatever the reason, homelessness threatens to interrupt students’ education and derail progress towards personal goals and ambitions.

              The Dax program objective is to create a ”home” environment and complement that with mentoring and support to allow these students to continue their education and work towards self-sufficiency.  The goal is to help the student reach graduation and not “fall off the radar”  due to lack of money and resources.  In this program the student is responsible for his or her own tuition through scholarships, loans and income.

              The “Host-Home” model is a best practice that provides an alternative to the shelter system. Volunteers open their homes to homeless DePaul University student for an academic term (12 weeks). Both the student and the volunteer hosts go through a screening and training process facilitated by the Dax Program Coordinator. 

              The program gives temporary housing and provides case management at St. Vincent Outreach Center to help students pursue their dreams and goals and to explore issues that contribute to their homelessness.  Ultimately, the student pursues employment and permanent housing.  The Dax Program Coordinator also supports the students by providing counseling and by helping students access employment and resources such as food, school supplies, and transportation.
