Funding changes force move for ShelterCare’s Homeless Medical Respite program

ShelterCare's new location

ShelterCare’s medical respite program might reopen at this location in December.

Nearly three weeks after a steep drop in state funding prompted the Eugene homeless advocacy nonprofit ShelterCare to end its mental health crisis housing program, the agency says it will move its medical treatment initiative for homeless people into the former motel that housed the mentally ill.
