Christ House provides comprehensive and compassionate healthcare to the sick and homeless in DC who are too sick to be on the streets but not sick enough to be in the hospital. A 24-hour, 33-bed, nursing and respite care home, its work has continued unabated during the pandemic. With strict adherence to safety protocols, it partners with local homeless outreach teams to identify and refer men who would benefit from nursing care, admitting individuals who test negative and those who are recovering after isolation. It also provides telemedicine support to homeless sites where vulnerable individuals have been relocated out of congregate settings and where patients are quarantined after testing positive or while awaiting results. Christ House is committed to maintaining a posture of hospitality while reducing the risk to its vulnerable patients a challenge to which it is determined to rise.
