Daily Planet offers a full-service healthcare center for the homeless, uninsured and underinsured populations of Greater Richmond without regard as to the patient’s ability to pay. The Center includes four clinics providing quality care and services in the areas of primary health, mental health, dental, and vision. The Daily Planet also provides case management services to the homeless, or those at risk of homelessness, by offering a treatment plan aimed at helping the client become self-sufficient. The Daily Planet operates the only Safe Haven in Virginia. The program includes a 22-bed transitional housing facility for the mentally ill who are chronically homeless and need shelter and supportive services in managing their illness in order to become self-sufficient.

Case Management Services
The Daily Planet provides comprehensive and integrated case management services for homeless adults in the Greater Richmond area who face significant barriers to overcoming homelessness. Case managers link clients to needed resources in the community and to all of Daily Planet’s services, including substance abuse services (inpatient treatment and outpatient groups), mental health services, and medical, dental, and vision services.
Medical Respite Program
The Medical Respite Program at Daily Planet provides short-term convalescent supervision for homeless clients with medical and mental health diagnoses. These individuals are usually discharged from medical facilities and are not able to stay in the emergency shelter system. In a safe, structured setting, program staff assess the psychosocial functioning of clients, provide case management services, and link clients to housing, substance abuse, and mental health treatment and other needed services.
