Do you know about the crisis of homelessness currently taking place in southern california?

There is an estimated homeless population of 55,736 individuals in Los Angeles County, Orange County, and the Inland Empire (Point-In-Time Count, 2015). In California, homeless individuals stay approximately 4 days longer than the average hospital stay. Each extra day costs the hospital approximately $3,000 per day of inpatient care. Illumination Foundation Recuperative Care greatly reduces this cost to hospitals by taking homeless clients out of the hospital beds and into our care. This effective model of care shows outcomes with 50% fewer readmissions within 90 days of being discharged to Recuperative Care than patients who are discharged to their own care.
