The Whole Person Care Interim Care Program
In October 2017, due in part to the success of the first Interim Care Program, Placer County contracted with the Gathering Inn to open a second facility. The Whole Person Care Interim Care Program, located in Auburn, is a 6-bed home like facility that temporarily houses medically fragile guests. The program has a staff of 8 employees who care for guests twenty-four hours, seven days a week. Services provided guests include house cleaning, food preparation, laundry, transportation to and from medical appointments, assistance with medication management, counseling, life skills education, exercise programs and much more. In the first year of operation, the Whole Person Care Interim Care Program provided over 2000 bed nights to many of the homeless populations most vulnerable.
