Volunteerism and Homeless Health Care


Summer 2007 - Volume 11 Number 3

 

Dear Dr Jacobs,

Thanks for writing an article about volunteerism, and homeless health care, and for encouraging physicians of all specialties, and their families, to get involved. (Jacobs L. Looking for an opportunity to serve your community? Suggestions on volunteering at a homeless medical clinic. Perm J 2007 Winter;11(1):70-1.)

The homeless represent a diverse group of people that includes some vulnerable patient populations, with special needs. Some of these needs include mental health, care of developmental disabilities, and substance abuse. I would refer you to American Family Physician's recently published review in: The Homeless in America: Adapting Your Practice1 and editorial: Health care for the homeless in America.2
