About our services

In our pursuit of 100% access to health care for everyone in our community, we have a long-standing commitment to adapting health care services to best meet the needs of those who have recently experienced or are experiencing homelessness. Neighborcare Health’s homeless programs are part of the King County Health Care for the Homeless Network.

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. 

Neighborcare Health at Ballard

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.

Housing Health Outreach Team (HHOT)

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). 

Street outreach

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. Patients can get other health services at the REACH offices at 2133 3rd Avenue Seattle, WA 98121. Walk-in hours are Mondays and Fridays from 1:00-3:30 pm. 

Neighborcare Health Youth Clinic

This clinic serves young people ages 12-26, who have experienced unstable housing and/or homelessness within the past year.
