Homeless Health Care Project

Homeless health careDownriver Community Services Homeless Health Care Project has either directly provided or coordinated the provision of health and support services to the homeless population since its incorporation in 1988.

Presently, the program receives Federal Funds through a Section 330, US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), as well as support from the Bureau of Primary Health Care Services (BPHC) Grant. In the mid 1990’s, the grant was combined with the Community Health Center (CHC) Grant.
