All resources Shelters & Prisons: Requests for Accommodation
Shelters and prisons often have strict policies in place for residents regarding policies like duration of stay and expectations within facilities. Individuals with certain disabilities, injuries, or medical conditions who are residing within these facilities may benefit from changes in protocols or additional resources, such as increasing the length of stay policy due to a medical procedure, requesting that children with diabetes be allowed to keep food inside of the room, or requesting a bottom bunk for a person who cannot safely ascend to a top bunk.
This resource provides sample language that providers can use to advocate for temporary accommodations for patients within shelters or prisons.
