Helping Educate and Link the Homeless
The Helping Educate and Link the Homeless (HEALTH) program serves as a bridge for those individuals who are uninsured, unemployed or disconnected from medical and other community services.
It provides a direct case management program for homeless patients with significant health care needs, and links patients with primary care services and community resources, provides education about medical conditions, respite care following an illness or surgery and coordinates follow up patient care plans. The HEALTH Program offers these services at locations throughout our community, adhering to the street medicine model that has always been the core of the program.
Gifts to support the HEALTH program play a vital role in providing transportation vouchers for medical appointments, medical care, educational materials and outreach in our community.
