The Columbus House Respite Program is located on the third floor of our emergency shelter on Ella T. Grasso Boulevard. Private rooms for 12 clients, with a length-of-stay of up to four weeks, enable the program to serve approximately 96 individuals per year.
This seven-bed area allows guests who need it access to bed rest even during the day. Specialized staff assure that guests facing healthcare challenges are linked to the medical and social services they need to move toward a full recovery. The respite shelter combines a stable living environment, access to medical care and case management support into a package that we believe will dramatically improve health outcomes.
