SFCCC Begins Its 24th Year of Providing Homeless Health Care

November 1 marked the start of a new grant year for SFCCC’s Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) services. Our HCH program, which is a partnership between SFCCC, eight of our partner non-profit clinics and the local Health Department, has been in operation since 1988. Homeless individuals are provided with a variety of services, including medical, dental, and behavioral health care, and case management that provides linkages to food, housing, employment assistance, and other needed services. Our HCH program served 15,718 homeless persons in 2010, and we have already served nearly that many in the first ten months of 2011.
