The Boulevard helps ill and injured homeless adults restore their lives.

The Boulevard provides medical respite care for homeless men and women in medical recovery. This 64-bed center on Chicago's West Side, offers interim housing and support to ill and injured homeless adults who would otherwise lack a stable and safe place to heal. As the only agency of its kind in Illinois, Interfaith House fills a critical gap in services for homeless individuals who have been discharged from area hospitals and emergency shelters and who require housing and support. The Boulevard also provides comprehensive psychological and social support services that are critical to helping homeless individuals return to health and to break the debilitating cycle of homelessness.

Eligibility
Unattached men and women who are homeless and being discharged from the hospital needing a short term placement (four to six weeks) in order to complete their recovery from a physical illness or injury. Interfaith House is not appropriate for patients requiring long term nursing home care.

Patients who can physically care for themselves (e.g. dress, bathe, self-ambulate, attend personal hygiene and take medication as prescribed), who no longer require bedside nursing care, can come to the dining room for meals, make their bed, and keep their living space neat. Interfaith House provides support to residents to complete their healing but it is not a medical treatment facility.

Patients who are mentally stable. Interfaith House is not a psychiatric treatment facility.

Patients who understand their care plan and can carry out the measures necessary to implement them with the help of Interfaith House staff, including compliance with medications and returning to their physicians for follow-up care.

Patients who are able to live in a communal environment, share a bedroom with four or five roommates, share meals in a common dining room with 64 residents, participate in educational sessions and group meetings (including AA and NA if appropriate) and follow Interfaith House conditions of residency.

Patients who will not use drugs or alcohol during their stay at Interfaith House.
