Individuals experiencing homelessness suffer from inadequate healthcare.
Barriers to healthcare can not only be physical, such as difficulty in transportation, but also social, such as a lack of trust in healthcare providers which can lead to an unwillingness to engage with healthcare and other social services.
Seattle Street Outreach Service aims to create a culture of health by a) providing healthcare in locations convenient for the unsheltered and low-income, and b) building trust by providing care for not only people but their beloved pets.
Care is delivered from the back of a refurbished ambulance, allowing a nimble, boots-on-the-ground approach to improving the culture of health for our unhoused neighbors.
