Take care of yourself!

One of the leading causes of homelessness is a person’s lack of healthcare. There are many resources in our community that can be afforded to you at little to no costs if you qualify.

You have options to prevent or treat illness and you should take advantage of that. People who do not tend to their healthcare needs put themselves at risk for life-altering events, including ruined credit, preventable disease, and potential loss of housing stability.

Below are local resources that can assist you with your health needs. Click on applicable tabs to learn more about agencies and programs.
