Health care services For health care providers For homeless service providers About us

Homelessness inevitably causes serious health problems. Illnesses that are closely associated with poverty - tuberculosis, AIDS, malnutrition, severe dental problems - devastate the homeless population. Health problems that exist quietly at other income levels - alcoholism, mental illnesses, diabetes, hypertension, physical disabilities - are prominent on the streets. Human beings without shelter fall prey to parasites, frostbite, infections and violence.
