The Interim Care Program (ICP) House in Auburn was on fire!
Steve Chase, house manager, had gone for a glass of water and found the back porch engulfed in flames. He called 911, got the three other residents to safety, and alerted neighbors after noticing the fire had spread to their roof.
For five years the home in Auburn provided a sanctuary for the sick who also happened to be homeless. Supported by Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region and Kaiser Permanent, the ICP House accepted discharged homeless patients from area hospitals. Guests stayed up to six weeks to recuperate from a surgery or illness. The ICP House kept many homeless patients from experiencing infection or re-injury while avoiding visits to the emergency room or re-admittance to the hospital. Last year 30 homeless guests found refuge there.
We leased another house and need your help. Everything was lost in the fire and desperately needs to be replaced so we can move in. To arrange drop-off or pick up of living room, bedroom and dining furniture, kitchen ware and appliances, personal items and more, contact Gabby.
