This is the goal! You make it happen!
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.

“I am pleased to serve as the Center’s Honorary Chair for the 2020-2021 annual appeal. I encourage all to consider a gift to the Center. The Center has continued 24-7 coverage during the pandemic for the people who are most vulnerable. Thank you to the Center for your work and welcoming my wife Beth, my young son Arthur and me into your family. We salute all that you do to make Cincinnati a better place to live and work.”

Thank you for your ongoing support!
Since the COVID-19 global health crisis, the Center for Respite Care has maintained a limited client census. As required by our state license, two rooms have been set aside for quarantine if and when needed. Client time out in the community has been restricted to only medically related activity. Trainings have been given to clients and staff on social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks, which have been made available to all. The clients are very compliant with the health and safety protocols that have been put in place. It is quite gratifying to see how supportive they are with each other as we go through this crisis together.
From Herbert: After this hospital release, I had nowhere to go. It was also what we learned to be the start of the corona virus, a frightening time. The hospital staff told me about the Center for Respite Care. My ending up at the Center saved my life. In the middle of a scary personal situation and a worldwide pandemic, I was introduced to people who cared. During my time here, the staff has taken care of my health, helped me get my dis-ability checks and created an environment that includes fun in our days.
