The mission of the Center for Respite Care is to provide quality, holistic medical care to homeless people who need a safe place to heal, while assisting them in breaking the cycle of homelessness.
We believe in the intrinsic worth of all persons and that they are entitled to the resources necessary to meet their basic needs. We believe that all people, regardless of race, color, beliefs, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, physical or mental handicap, or limited financial means are entitled to good health care, a place to live and a sense of self-worth. We believe all people are important and that they should be treated with fairness, respect and dignity. We are committed to upholding the rights of those without power and influence, and believe that in doing so we best serve the common good.
We believe in delivering quality care regardless of the client’s ability to pay.
We believe in understanding and helping the whole person physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually, respecting the client’s wishes regarding his or her needs without judgment or criticism.
We put the client at the center of what we do. We believe in creating a nurturing and caring environment, working with clients’ strengths, and empowering each individual to reach his or her full potential. We believe that clients have the ability to understand and articulate their own needs and participate actively in their plan of care.
We respect the diversity among our clients and staff and believe that through diversity we complement one another and enhance our effectiveness. We are committed to unity and harmony among our clients and staff and within the community. We work toward goals with a commitment to sharing responsibility and accountability in the accomplishment of those goals.
We strive to work collaboratively with a diverse cross-section of community minded individuals and organizations to develop programs and services that meet the emerging needs of homeless and indigent people.
