 Emergency Housing Program

In order to qualify for our emergency housing program you must:

  • Have a minor child in your custody
  • Be literally homeless (meaning on the street or in a car)

Entrance into this program is based on vulnerability, there is a waiting list and it is not first come, first serve. Our Emergency Housing Program is for 28 days, during that time we will work with you to connect you to a longer term housing program with Illumination Foundation or a partner agency.

Recuperative Care

If you are currently receiving care in a hospital, or in need of medical care at a hospital, Recuperative Care may be right for you.

The Recuperative Care Program is not open to the public. All clients must be homeless and referred to the program by a medical or mental health hospital. Ask your hospital discharge planner about Illumination Foundation Recuperative Care when discussing your discharge plan.
Our Recuperative Care Program offers homeless patients a safe play to stay and recover after being discharged from the hospital in a clean, safe, and supportive shelter environment. Clients receive three meals a day along with intensive case management from Medical Coordinators and Case managers to acquire stability and maintain self-care. Staff will help with transportation to social, medical, and mental health appointments.

For Hospital Discharge Planners only: Please visit for more information on referring your patient to Illumination Foundation Recuperative Care.
