Tutu Bert's House

The Tutu Bert’s Medical Respite House operated by The Institute for Human Services (IHS) offers a place for medically frail homeless individuals to recover after spending time in the hospital. While medical emergencies are frightening for anyone, those experiencing homelessness have a range of additional challenges including unplanned expenses and the lack of a stable support network. Further, going back to the streets before healing fully can mean infection, further illness, or even death. At the Tutu Bert’s House, homeless individuals have the opportunity to recover and heal in a safe and caring environment.
