Street Medicine is at the heart of what we do. The power of this mobile outreach lives in our mission to meet need where it lives, providing health and behavioral care for individuals who are experiencing homelessness. Often, these resilient, hard-to-reach individuals are resistant to seek care. By making rounds in city corners, Street Medicine builds trust and relationships in hope that these patients will come into our clinics for a full range of care.
The Purpose of Street Medicine
- Provide immediate primary and behavioral healthcare to individuals living unsheltered on the streets and engage them in ongoing services
- Educate patients on behaviors to reduce harmful habits and promote health awareness
- Expose future providers to the specific conditions and health needs of the unsheltered homeless community
