A System of Care...

Camillus House has grown steadily over the years from a small soup kitchen into a full-service center offering what we call a comprehensive “system of care” for the poor and homeless — a seamless, step-by-step process designed to bring persons from a life on the streets all the way to permanent housing.

Fully integrated services are provided through multiple program areas.

Compassionate Healing (substance abuse and mental health treatment)

The Continuum of Housing (emergency, transitional, and permanent housing)

Compassionate Hospitality (food, clothing, showers, outreach, case management, rent assistance)

Camillus Health Concern (sister organization providing health care services including adult primary care, pediatrics and a number of specialties)
