The Gathering Inn's Interim Care Program Needs Your Help!

The Interim Care Program House in Auburn caught on fire in January.

Supported by Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region and Kaiser Permanente, the ICP House accepts discharged homeless patients from area hospitals. Guests can stay up to six weeks to recuperate from a surgery or illness before returning to the nomadic shelter or to permanent housing.

The ICP Program is a service that The Gathering Inn provides. For the past five years the ICP home on Shockley Avenue in Auburn provided a healing refuge, a sanctuary for the sick, and who also happened to be homeless.

The ICP House has kept many homeless patients from experiencing infection or re-injury while avoiding visits to the emergency room or re-admittance to the hospital. Last year was a banner year with 30 homeless guests finding refuge there.

Another home has been leased and they need your help since everything was lost in the fire. Below is a list of the items they desperately need to replace so they can move in March 1st.
