This symbol was used by American "hoboes" in the earlier part of the twentieth century. It indicated "if you are sick, they will take care of you here".
Street Health is "Going Green”! As part of this campaign we would like to offer our donors the opportunity to begin receiving their Bi-Annual newsletter by email.
Our goal is to switch 30% of our donors to an E-Newsletter by the end of the year for a savings of over $2000. Any savings will go towards our much needed programs and services. Join the movement!
30th Anniversary, 2016
Together we can make it work
Caring health care for the homeless and under-housed
On the street, in parks, or at area drop-in centres, Street Health provides healthcare to homeless and under-housed individuals. Many people living on the street avoid mainstream health services, so our programs support people in the places where they spend their time.
Get in touch to learn more about any Street Health program at 416 921 8668.
Staff nurses, volunteer RNs and Nurse Practitioners provide healthcare at scheduled clinics in drop-in centres and shelters.
Community Mental Health Program
This program supports people to access basic needs such as shelter, income, health care and personal identification. As many as 30% of homeless people have faced a mental health challenge.
Harm Reduction Program
Using a harm reduction model, this program supports clients using or dependent on substances. These include sanitary needles, safer crack kits, counseling, and referrals to other health services.
Access to Health Cards for the Homeless
We help people access health and other essential social services. A health card is key to receiving medical support, and applying can be onerous.
Street Health provides safe storage of important identification documents. Individuals can retrieve their ID when needed to access services.
Community Based Research
Research projects provide valuable information and advocacy tools for the community of agencies and coalitions working to address homelessness.
