Healthcare for the Homeless

At Harris Health System, we want to improve healthcare for the homeless, and make it easier for the homeless to access healthcare services.

Our Healthcare for the Homeless Program provides dental care and a variety of preventive and primary healthcare services to homeless individuals through shelter-based clinics and through mobile health and dental units. The program also provides eligibility and registration services through homeless shelter locations in the greater Houston area.

Through a number of strategic partnerships, the Healthcare for the Homeless Program provides on-site mental health and substance abuse counseling.

This 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 tuberculin screening and follow-up, and increases health promotion and prevention education among the homeless in our community.
