Interfaith House is the Midwest's first health recovery center. This sixty-bed respite program provides homeless persons discharged from area hospitals with the medical care and shelter they need to continue healing. Interfaith House uses the recovery period as a window of opportunity to introduce patients to programs that will help them regain a foothold in the community -- an approach that reduces health care costs and hospital readmissions. Interfaith House was planned by Interfaith Housing and the Interfaith Council for the Homeless. It has served over 3,000 homeless individuals since opening in June, 1994.
