Nativity House Respite Care Program provides a temporary bed to homeless patients that are being discharged from CHI Franciscan and Multicare hospitals in Pierce County a safe environment to recuperate while having the ability to access medical care and other supportive services. The purpose is to ensure that homeless individuals are able to heal properly to avoid readmission to the hospital and to connect them to services to hopefully transition them into permanent housing.
