We don’t know what the future holds for David.*
Before he could get his late-stage cancer treated, David’s oncologist told him that his mouth had to be cleared of all infection.
Parita Patel, our Dental Director, did what she could. She conducted an exam and pulled many of his infected teeth. But David needed oral surgery with sedation to safely remove all the damaged teeth.
"Each person showed me there was somebody else here that could help."
For many years, Eliza cycled in and out of hospitals, jails and the street. For the last two-plus years she has been safely housed, and in the last eight months, she has not been admitted or incarcerated once. Her home, which she secured through the Supportive Housing at Health Care for the Homeless, is the symbolic center of her life.
“When we speak of homelessness, I speak of a person who doesn’t have a key to his or her own place.”
"One thing that drew me to Health Care for the Homeless is their attention to all people from all walks of life, sharing that compassion and humanity. I hope to accomplish that with medicine in the future, too."
