Joseph & Mary’s Home is Northeast Ohio’s first and only medical respite – a warm, safe environment where each person can recuperate and connect to housing resources. We offer adults experiencing homelessness a chance to heal, access resources in their community, and begin the next steps in their journey.

“Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the LORD delivers him; the LORD protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The LORD sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.”

– Psalm 41:1-3

Healing Hearts & Minds

Joseph & Mary’s Home provides medical respite filling a service gap between hospital and shelter. We serve people experiencing homelessness who are ready to be discharged from a hospital but too frail to recover on the streets or in shelters. The goal of respite care is to stabilize homeless patients’ medical conditions so they can transition safely to self care.

Transforming Lives

Once residents leave Joseph & Mary’s Home, they can stay connected and continue to receive support through a robust alumni program that includes hundreds of graduates from over the years. Joseph & Mary’s Home encourages alumni to stay connected through intensive follow-up via in-home visits, telephone calls, mail and other forms of continuous contact. Constant connection with alumni ensures effective long-term impact.

Inspiring Action

You can help heal lives! Your financial and in-kind gifts to Joseph & Mary’s Home will help adults without resources heal and recover. A contribution of any amount will help provide safe shelter, nourishing meals, nursing care, transportation to medical appointments, and a wide range of social services and supportive programming tailored to the unique needs of each resident.

Alumni Spotlight: Animal Lover Elaine at Home with Her Health and New Bunny

Elaine has held many jobs throughout her life, including running a rescue farm and caring for horses for 18 years. COVID, a number of health issues and a series of unfortunate events changed that. After spending more than three years at a shelter, Elaine came to Mary’s Home to recover from COPD exacerbation. After stabilizing her health, Joseph & Mary’s Home staff connected her to permanent housing. With a place to call home, she was able to return to caring for animals, adopting a pet rabbit she named Precious Bunny. Both Elaine and Precious Bunny are enjoying all the space and natural light that her new apartment offers.
