Micah’s Residential Recovery Program, aka Respite House, focuses on those sick enough to need family, hospice or home health care, but well enough that they could be discharged to their home, if they had one.
- To reduce recurring emergency room and hospital visits due to illnesses complicated by non-traditional/outdoor housing circumstances.
- To offer alternative accommodations to temporary or terminally ill individuals who would otherwise die or face difficult recovery in outdoor housing circumstances.
Caring for Neighbors
With the ability to house eight guests on any given day, this program provides a safe, community-based alternative to costly inpatient care. Guests receive a nurturing environment for physical and mental recovery and case-managed support that promotes individual success. Admission requires referral from a medical or mental health professional.

HEALTH AND HOPE
Micah cares for those staying in the Respite House like friends and family. We manage medication, provide homemade meals, transport people to appointments and coordinate other important aspects of recovery. Many hands and feet are needed to providing that level of support. Consider being part of the volunteer team, helping our neighbors strive for health and hope.
