DePaul Hopelink At Shelter Cove 2018

DePaul Hopelink Program

Program in Partnership

DePaul operates a Hopelink program that is a short-stay residence in which individuals who are hospitalized have exclusive access to a unique residential alternative upon discharge from the medical hospital.  Hopelink at Shelter Cove, a Short-Stay Residence in Churchville, New York, is a partnership between DePaul Community Services and UR Medicine/Strong Memorial Hospital.

Program Overview

The DePaul Hopelink program is designed for adults who are currently hospitalized for health-related issues and no longer require the acute services provided by the hospital.

The program itself serves as a therapeutic, short-term solution for individuals who cannot return to their place of residence upon discharge from the hospital. Individuals who lack a permanent residence will also be eligible for this program.

The overall goal of the Hopelink program is to provide individuals with the support they need, enabling either a return to their residence or securing a residence that is appropriate for their long-term needs.

All DePaul Hopelink referrals must come through the inpatient hospital social work department.
