Boston Health Care forHomeless  Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program provides homeless individuals & families in Boston with access to the highest quality health care.

We're so glad our friends at Crico Strategies were thinking of our patients on Valentine's Day. They held a drive for packages of new underwear and socks, two staples that we and our patients are always grateful to receive. We're thankful for all of you, our many supporters, for showing love to BHCHP and our patients all year long!

Thanks to our friends at @athenahealth for coming by to volunteer with our patients! Interested in bringing your company to our HQ in the South End to learn more about our work, and have a fun night playing bingo with our patients? Learn more at bhchp.org/get-involved

Regram from @samsonsbeard - We had a memorial service at work for patients who passed away recently. Everyone who attended (patients and staff) wrote down the name of someone they wanted to be remembered. Our SW rolled up the papers and put it on a canvas. I've never seen a more beautiful memorial...

This mornings's @winterwalkboston was a huge success! Thank you to all our supporters, volunteers and staff who came out to show support for Boston's most vulnerable neighbors. We are proud to be one of five partner organizations of the walk, all of which work with people experiencing homelessness in Boston.

Happy anniversary to HER Saturday! Every Saturday for the last year, our clinic has been a place for women to relax, get something to eat, and see a clinician. Thanks to those who attend, and to all the volunteers & staff who make HER Saturday a great experience!

In this frigid weather, our staff is on the streets checking in with patients and distributing handwarmers, hats & gloves. If you can, we appreciate any support you can give to help us continue to provide our life-saving services. https://www.bhchp.org/news/cold-weather-tips]

Reese stoped by our recent health fair at @bridgeotw and was pleasantly surprised to find our volunteer, Joyce of @helpis_official, giving free hair cuts. As Reese said, "it definitely makes a difference. When you look good, it makes you feel good."

We are so proud to be honoring Laila Berstein with our Change Maker Award at the Emerging Leaders Fall Soiree on 10/19! (Link in bio.)
Laila Bernstein is Advisor to the Mayor for the Initiative to End Chronic Homelessness in the City of Boston. She has had the honor to work on this Initiative since fall of 2014.
During that time, the City and its partners have reduced the number of homeless Veterans on any given night to the lowest count ever seen in Boston (44% reduction in 3 years), ended chronic homelessness among veterans, and housed 391 chronically homeless individuals. Congratulations Laila!

Last week we had a health fair at Bridge Over Troubled Waters, a local organization working with teens. Clinicians, nursing students & staff were on hand to administer flu shots and discuss health concerns like mental health, contraception, and STD testing, and hand out snacks and prizes. A couple of therapy dogs even came by to spend the afternoon with the teens at Bridge!
