medically vulnerable people

A large group of people experiencing homelessness are age 55 or older; these individuals ought to be categorized as senior citizens due to the adverse effects of exposure to the elements, inadequate nutrition, limited access to hygiene resources, and lack of regular medical care on their health.

The MVP facility serves as an interim housing and care program for individuals experiencing homelessness who are aging, have a significant medical condition, or need recuperative care.
