Elean and Henry’s experience demonstrates just one example of the special attention and care some Rescue Mission guests need because of temporary health concerns.

To meet this urgent need in our community, in October 2018 the Mission purchased the 6,000 sq. ft. building immediately adjacent to Mission-owned Valley Women and Children’s Shelter in Nampa. As a former assisted living facility, it was uniquely suited to serve medically fragile guests.

The Recovery Lodge officially opened its doors in August of 2019 and is able to serve up to 45 homeless individuals at a time.

One of the distinct purposes of the Recovery Lodge is provide wrap-around support services to guests with medical issues that can’t be effectively addressed in the normal emergency shelter environment. Recovery Lodge case managers coordinate care through partnerships with health- care providers and community agencies, helping guests regain their health and successfully transition out of the Recovery Lodge into other appropriate housing.

This kind of care assists guests in navigating complex health systems, maintaining ongoing relationships with medical providers, and coordinating transportation to and from appointments and support service. It provides the personalized support needed to stay on track with their individual care plans and lower the chances they will return to the hospital.
