Healthcare for the Homeless

At Harris Health System, we want to make it easier for people experiencing homelessness to access healthcare services. 

Our Health Care for the Homeless Program, through shelter-based clinics and mobile units, provides primary medical care, dental care, mental health and substance use services, and a variety of support services to persons experiencing homelessness. The program also provides eligibility and registration services through the shelter-based clinics and in other homeless service locations in greater Houston.

The Health Care for the Homeless Program:

  • Reduces or eliminates barriers to healthcare experienced by homeless individuals
  • Enables healthcare problems to be detected and treated early
  • Decreases emergency center use for primary care needs
  • Increases immunization rates of homeless children
  • Increases tuberculosis screening and follow-u
  • Increases health promotion and prevention education among homeless individual
