The Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter is home to a 6-bed, 24-hour per day Recuperative Care Program that provides a safe place to recuperate and convalesce for individuals who would otherwise be discharged to the streets. In addition to providing emergency shelter beds 24 hours a day - 7 days a week, the program also provides around the clock staffing, case management, and is staffed by an RN who helps coordinate appropriate follow-up care and ensures that discharge plans are followed and adjusted as needed. Clients are referred to the program by the discharging hospital or a skilled nursing facility only.
