The Theriault House is housing that will be a safe place for homeless families with children 0 to 5 years old to recuperate after being discharged from the hospital. The families will be immediately housed and receive critical assistance in caring for their sick child. In addition to medical stabilization, the families will be assessed and a comprehensive plan will be developed to connect them to permanent housing through Orange County’s Coordinated Entry System.

We believe that being without a home, should not prevent an individual from accessing healthcare.
