Vulnerable Person Hotel, Medical Respite Center,
and Hotels to Housing

VPH, MRC & H2H

Focus Counseling works in partnership with Dane County Department of Human Services to support individuals experiencing homelessness in the Dane County area.  In association with the City of Madison, the Vulnerable Persons Hotel (VPH) was established in 2020 to provide a safe space for those experiencing homelessness who also are at a greater risk of critical outcomes from contracting the COVID 19 virus.

At the same time, Dane County Department of Humans Services established the Medical Respite Center (MRC) to provide a space for individuals experiencing homelessness who were symptomatic and awaiting COVID 19 test results and those who were diagnosed as COVID 19 positive.  At the MRC, individuals can safely quarantine and receive necessary support for comfort and provisions for daily living until their quarantine period is complete and they test COVID negative.

In 2021, Dane County Department of Human Services announced the Hotels to Housing (H2H) Program, through which individuals experiencing homelessness, who are also at greater risk of critical outcomes from contracting the COVID 19 virus can access short-term case management services and supports to establish and maintain long-term housing.
