About our services
Neighborcare Health is the largest provider of primary medical care for people experiencing homelessness in Seattle. In our pursuit of 100% access to health care for everyone in our community, we offer alternative models of care for those who have recently experienced or are experiencing homelessness.
Many of these patients have a deep mistrust or fear often rooted in trauma, and multiple barriers to care. We provide quality, patient-centered health care often “on their terms and their turf” to improve their health and relieve suffering. We use methods that are essential to caring for high-need, high-risk patients, including relationship-based and trauma-informed care, and harm reduction. We also provide health care services to people living in low-income housing (not necessarily previously homeless), to ensure they can stay healthy, stable and housed.
This clinic serves adults currently experiencing homelessness or those living in permanent supportive housing, with primary medical care and behavioral health services, including medication for opioid use disorder.
This team is led by nurses who work in partnership with primary medical care providers and behavioral health specialists to offer medical and behavioral health services to residents in permanent supportive housing. (Permanent supportive housing is affordable housing with multiple services to help those with a history of chronic homelessness stay housed).
Neighborcare Health nurses partner with Evergreen Treatment Services’ REACH program to connect with clients wherever they are—under overpasses, in encampments, on the streets—to provide nursing support and links to health care. This team, along with a medical provider, also provides low-barrier medication for opioid use disorder to REACH and LEAD (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion) program participants at the REACH offices in downtown Seattle and at our Pike Place Market clinic. Walk-in hours at our Pike Place Market clinic are Monday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00-3:30 pm.
This clinic serves young people ages 12-26, who have experienced unstable housing and/or homelessness within the past year.
Neighborcare Health’s homeless programs are part of the King County Health Care for the Homeless Network.
