It's true: you can help another person! Join us today!

What You Can Do: The Boulevard--Illinois’ only provider of medical respite housing for ill and injured homeless adults--is always open to musical performances in the evenings! We call this our "Songs for the Spirit" program, and our residents find it a lot of fun to hear classical, R & B, oldies, rock, ethnic, choral or sing-along music!

If your amateur or professional music group or singing ensemble would like to provide a 45-60 minute concert in our dining room, we would love to host you. We can accommodate groups up to 30 people, and sing-along’s/interactive music styles are always popular. Come once, or consider a repeat performance! Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Friday nights from 6pm-7pm are generally available.

What We Do: If you are homeless, what happens when you are injured or diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, or heart disease? The Boulevard serves over 300 homeless adults annually, helping them recover from physical injury, illness, addiction or mental health issues. After they recover, we assist Residents in finding safe housing and building a stable life: our goal is to help every client leave the homeless experience, hopefully forever. The Boulevard is the only medical respite facility for homeless individuals in all of Illinois.

Location:

3456 West Franklin Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60624, US

Mission Statement

The Boulevard: The Road to Health and Home provides a healing environment and resources to help ill and injured homeless adults restore their health, rebuild their lives and regain self sufficiency. The Boulevard is the only agency of its kind in state of Illinois, and one of only a small handful nationwide. Visit our website! http://www.blvd.org/

Description

The Boulevard is a medical respite program designed specifically to address the challenges faced by homeless adults discharged from hospitalization with no place to go to recuperate. We aid these individuals in completing their medical recovery or stabilization, begin to address the root causes of their homelessness, and find stable housing. With a capacity of 64 beds (15 women, 49 men), and a usual length of stay of 90 to 120 days, we were able to assist 334 individuals in rebuilding their lives in our last fiscal year.
