Health Care for the Homeless works to prevent and end homelessness for vulnerable individuals and families by providing quality, integrated health care and promoting access to affordable housing and sustainable incomes through direct service, advocacy, and community engagement.
Impact: These projects build the capacity of our staff to deliver care to our nearly 10,000 patients experiencing homelessness. The project supports the building of relationships between staff and clients as we work to address individual’s health needs.
