STREET2HOME represents Illumination Foundation's answer to the current impasse in governmental policy making towards homelessness in Orange County. The Board of Supervisors has approved building a centralized 200 bed homeless shelter as the solution to homelessness, but is stymied by adverse community reaction. Illumination Foundation believes an alternate distributive model will provide a better long-term outcome. Illumination Foundation has been evolving the concept of recuperative care since 2008 providing post hospital recovery for homeless patients discharged from hospitals. During the last 18 months IF has been piloting a project called Chronic Care PLUS to provide long-term recuperative care and permanent housing to super utilizer chronically homeless individuals. STREET2HOME is IF's proposal for expanding the CCP model with medical outreach and community partnerships to implement an alternate solution to providing care for the Civic Center homeless population.
