WHEREVER YOU ARE

Wherever you are: Healthcare for the homeless

Of all of the vulnerable populations within CHC, persons who do not have a stable housing situation—or even just a roof over their heads—face enormous difficulties. While working with coalitions and communities to end homelessness, CHC also devotes special attention to healthcare for this population.

Mobile health clinics

“WYA” (Wherever You Are) Healthcare for the Homeless provides a special team that includes a nurse practitioner, physician, registered nurse, substance abuse counselor, psychiatric APRN and outreach worker staff small efficient clinics within multiple homeless, domestic violence, and transitional shelters in New Britain, Meriden, Middletown and Wallingford.

Goals

Our goal is to assess the health needs of every shelter resident, provide prompt treatment for acute problems, update the individual on necessary preventive care such as immunizations and screenings, and then connect the individual with one of our primary care sites for any on-going primary care.

The range of health problems encountered—from weather exposure disorders to infection to addiction—is challenging. Our patients are not just the single adults most often thought of in planning services for the homeless but also women, children, and sometimes even newborns just discharged from the hospital.
