Health care services and resources for people living homeless

Teams of clinical service providers are situated at a variety of sites throughout King County. The teams use a trauma-informed approach in providing services. They are skilled at meeting the person who is homeless "where they are", and build trusting relationships with them.

Mobile medical care

This program provides walk-in care for people who are living homeless (or were recently homeless) only. Clinic dates and times are updated monthly. Anyone experiencing homelessness in need of care can walk up to the program's medical van. The program does not charge a fee and does not require insurance. No appointment is necessary.
