Health care services for people living homeless
PHSKC works to improve the health of people living homeless through a continuum of activities ranging from system change to health promotion to treatment. Providing health care for people experiencing homelessness represents our largest body of work.
The Health Care for the Homeless Network (HCHN) provides health care services for people experiencing homelessness in King County and provides leadership to help change the conditions that deprive our neighbors of home and health.
The Mobile Medical program provides basic medical care, dental care, and social services to homeless individuals and families living in Seattle and south King County. At each site a full free meal is served by the church. The program does not charge a fee and does not require insurance.
