Making healthcare accessible
Each year we lose people to homelessness… finding a way to bridge the gap was the only option we would accept.“
In 2020, Access Services launched the Street Medicine program in collaboration with Tower Health Medical Group, Community Health & Dental, and other local support programs. These community partnerships allowed the idea of accessible healthcare to become a reality for those we serve in Pottstown. Our Street Medicine team completes twice weekly care visits, going into the community and woods to meet directly with those who need medical attention. The program continues to grow and in 2022, street medicine expanded to Norristown as well.
Our Program Goals
Street Medicine is a community-based model for bringing integrated treatment services to homeless individuals where they are living, including access to treatment, engagement with providers, personal outcomes, and coordination of integrated care.
