Medical Help For The Homeless

A place providing short-term health care for the homeless is opening in Asheville.

The Haywood Street Respite was paid for through private donations and offers space for up to ten people a day.

Those who are not able to recover on the streets after hospital stays qualify for treatment and shelter.

The "respite" concept is already being used in other cities across the country and organizers say it is a proven health care cost-cutter.

The local operation is housed in the Haywood Street Congregation Church and took three-years to complete.

It is located at the corner of Haywood Street and Patton Avenue in Asheville and opens Monday, 1/6/14.
