Yes! If you are unable to complete the application online, just send us a message through the Contact form on this website. Include your phone number, and one of our volunteers will contact you and complete an application on your behalf.
Anyone with a working email address can fill out the application for the visit. That person will need to be able to provide information about the patient, caregiver, and any other people planning to stay in the apartment. If no one associated with the patient has an email address, send us a message through the Contact form on this website; include your phone number and one of our volunteers will contact you to complete the application for you.
We use your email address to create a secure login ID for your application. This helps ensure (a) that we know we're talking to a real person, and (b) that the information you share with us will remain safe and secure. We do not share your email address with anyone outside this organization or use it for any anything that isn't related to your application with InSpirit Patient Housing.
No. Our system will send an email to the address you enter. There is a link in the email to confirm that you received it. If you can't click the link, then you won't be able to finish the application. Someone who does have an email address can complete the application with you, or on your behalf. You can also send us a note using the Contact form on this website. Include your phone number, and one of our volunteers will call you back and complete the application for you on the phone.
Our placement process does not involve credit checks. Some of the apartment complexes that we partner with do require a basic background check. These are processed confidentially and are only seen by the church that is handling the placement.
All apartments are required to have at least one person in addition to the patient. Medical treatment is tiring, and the patient will need someone to help with transportation, meals, laundry, and other daily concerns.
Unfortunately, no. Many of our residents are immune-compromised and we have to keep the apartments as clean as possible for them. For this reason, no animals of any kind can be allowed in the apartments. This applies to service animals and emotional support animals as well as pets.
This information is strictly optional. It can help us find a placement close your care facility. We can also follow up with your social worker so that they can give you information about traveling to and from the Medical Center.
All of our member churches accept checks and cash. Most also have a way to accept credit cards. This could involve an additional fee (usually about 3%) to cover credit card processing charges. The volunteer who calls you about your placement can provide more information about the specific way their church handles this.
It depends on the apartment. However, the apartments are not "efficiency" units. All apartments have one or two full-size bedrooms. Living areas can comfortably accommodate everyone in the apartment, with at least one full-size couch and other seating. All kitchens include full-size appliances and a nearby breakfast/dining area. Please ask the volunteer who contacts you about placement for more details.
It depends. Most of the apartments have carpet in the living area and bedrooms and vinyl or tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. Each apartment is slightly different. The volunteer who calls about your placement can answer questions about the specific unit they have for you.
If anyone in your group has mobility issues, please indicate that on the application. Many of the apartments are on the first floor, or located in buildings with elevators or drive-up floor access. We will do our best to meet your needs.
