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 assisted treatment for opioid use.
This team, led by nurses who work in partnership with primary medical providers, behavioral health specialists, and a chemical dependency counselor, offers medical and behavioral health services to residents in permanent supportive housing.
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 assisted treatment for opioid use to REACH and LEAD (Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion) program participants at the REACH offices in downtown Seattle.
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.
Mobile COVID-19 Assessment and Testing Team (CAT)
This new team was created to combat COVID-19 in our most vulnerable patient populations who live outside and in congregate settings. The team travels to different locations throughout Seattle (shelters, encampments, permanent supportive housing buildings, drop-in centers, etc.) to offer COVID-19 testing on site and coordinate with Public Health – Seattle & King County’s Isolation and Quarantine (I&Q) Units for symptomatic and/or COVID-positive patients who are unable to self-isolate.
