Michael's Story

Twelve months ago, Michael was in a medically induced coma with a 30% survival rate. Against all odds, he walked out of the hospital stronger and opened the door to his next chapter: sobriety.


After completing substance abuse counseling, Michael was living in a halfway house in Central New York before arriving to our Albany Emergency Shelter. With IPH, he received case management, nutritional meals, continued substance abuse counseling and a safe place to go to bed each night.


IPH’s innovative and supportive approach leads to higher guest success rates and improved stability for guests within our Shelter Programs.


IPH Opens Doors Every Day to individuals and families in our community. Your annual fund gift has an immediate impact and creates more stable homes for those in need.
