Providing direct-in-community health care to unhoused adults and children
The UCLA Health Homeless Healthcare Collaborative team provides care to unhoused people of all ages, genders, ethnicities and backgrounds. As one of the only street medicine teams that cares for homeless children as well as adults, we’re passionate about promoting health equity and expanding access to high quality care.
Who We Serve
We visit individuals in shelters, camps, interim housing sites and on the streets. We bring care directly to children and families in local schools and at special events in our community. As our team identifies additional needs, we continue to expand our reach to serve more people experiencing homelessness.
Mission and Goals
The UCLA Health Homeless Healthcare Collaborative aims to promote greater health equity and clinical outcomes for people experiencing homelessness.
Since our program was established in January 2022, our team has cared for thousands of unhoused people in our community.
