Madison-Area Urban Ministry – Madison, Wisconsin
- Grant Program: GrantsPlus
- Amount of Grant: $50,000
- Dates of Grant Term: July 2017 – July 2019
Madison-Area Urban Ministry’s Healing House will be a 24/7 medical respite facility for families who are homeless and have a member in need of recuperative care post hospital or emergency room discharge. Currently there is no such facility in Wisconsin and hospitals routinely discharge homeless children and parents back onto the streets, or postpone needed medical care for lack of a safe place in which to recuperate. Healing House will provide recuperative care, three meals per day, transportation to and from medical follow-up appointments, health care management and education, and case management related to long-term housing needs.
