Home is where you feel at home and are treated well
- Dalai Lama
The importance of feeling comfortable and welcomed in a medical home is important to anyone, but especially to homeless people who regularly face stigma and discrimination in medical settings. Our SOS program provides homeless people and their pets living on the streets of San Francisco with urgent medical services, then links them to a primary medical home where they can get on-going care. Care where they won’t be judged, where the doctors speak their language, and where they’ll be made to feel right at home.
