Healthcare for the Homeless
RiverStone Health’s Healthcare for the Homeless service provides medical services for people experiencing homelessness and connects them to the care they need. Healthcare for the Homeless typically serves homeless adults and families who stay in emergency shelters, sleep in makeshift shelters or on the streets, in hotels, temporarily live with friends or family members, eat in soup kitchens or visit drop-in centers. We also connect individuals to services such as other specialty care, housing, food, and clothing through local service agencies.
