Program director Jody Halstead finds the mission of Respite deeply fulfilling.

"My roommates, once they gave it a chance, genuinely loved it. They've gotten the same experience I've gotten. They surely let their guard down and got to enjoy healing."

"It's the same set of guidelines. It's like fight or flight. If you show any weakness, you're a victim. So, I reverted to what I knew when I was younger, which is fighting."

After two months, Webb thinks he will be leaving Respite soon.

"Hopefully, I can take some of what I've learned here with me and maybe teach it to some other people, as well. Patience, kindness, humbleness. I've been so humbled by this program. It's a godsend, that's for sure."

The short term goal for people is to allow them to rest where they can heal without worry. Let them eat on a regular basis without having to worry.

His voice reveals regret that he'd been too willing to engage in fights especially a fight at Aston Park Towers that he says led to a broken tibia and fibula, leaving him unable to walk and, with no health insurance, a $100,000 hospital bill. He had no place to go for recovery except the hard streets.

A 2011 scooter accident that broke his leg led to a downward occupational and financial spiral.

"It's been the best experience of my life," Webb said. "It changed my life. The people here, the atmosphere of this program, they take care of you in every way. Not just your physical needs, but your mental needs, as well. They take care of all your medications and appointments, so you don't have to bear that burden. All the staff is wonderful, and a lot of them are just volunteers. They spend all their time just coming in and helping us, letting us relax and be who we are.

Exposure to kindness is a given and made an impact on Webb.

"We accept people who've been discharged for an in hospital patient stay. You have to be willing and Converse Shoes Basketball able to participate in your discharge instructions."

Even simple treatments are hard for the homeless. Halstead recalled a woman living on the streets with a kidney stone whose doctor told her to drink lots of water.

"A discharged hospital patient is still kind of sick," Halstead said. "You're still not raring to go. You need some time to heal. If you are living on the streets, your time and energy is devoted to things like: Where will I sleep tonight? What will I eat today? How will I get that prescription filled?

Fortunately, a wounded Webb found a safe harbor from his dangerous life that not only healed him but taught him there may be another way to live, even if he stays on the streets.

In January and February the program logged more than 300 volunteer hours. Halstead attributed this to the community's support of the program. Business and churches have been supportive, she said.

"When I came in here I was able to just " his voice choked up slightly "to totally let myself be defenseless. You know, let my guard down. And take that mask off I had been wearing on the streets. And it was a blessing I was able to just remove that mask and just be me. I'm a wonderful guy, but out there you just can't be a wonderful person. Or you'll get victimized."

"Some of the criteria for admission to the program are that they are homeless, adult, ambulatory and independent in the ADLs" that is, the activities of daily living, such as giving yourself a bath.

The short term goal is to return patients to a baseline state of health, even though that baseline may have changed.

"How are you going to drink more water and where are you going to pee?" Halstead said. "It sounds very simple that I've got to keep my leg elevated. And where exactly am I going to do that?
