During walk in hours you can meet with a case manager to discuss resources and create a housing plan. This meeting does not guarantee that you will receive housing services from us, but we will work with you to find stability for yourself and your family. We are unable to provide motel vouchers.
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.

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.
