Our mission is singular: to end homelessness. Our work is cross-agency, community-driven and collaborative. We support each other. We invest in every staff member’s professional aspirations and life success. Our largest clinic is housed in a beautiful LEED certified building filled with client artwork and natural light. And every day we have the privilege of helping extraordinary individuals move toward health and stability.
The services we provide cut across multiple disciplines—from primary medical and behavioral health care to benefits enrollment assistance and supportive housing services.

Our outdoor balcony—with tables and chairs, a mini flower garden and fabulous view of the downtown skyline—definitely helps draw inspiration!
We invest in every member of the Health Care for the Homeless staff, with:
