Grant Award for Expansion of Services to the Homeless

TCHC was awarded a second round of grant funding for $30,000 by The Boston Scientific Foundation to support the expansion of its mobile health clinic providing health care, social services, housing assistance, substance recovery, and case management for the homeless of Fremont and Livermore. 

During 2012, TCHC expects to treat 500 homeless patients and provide 1,900 medical services. With the HOPE expansion initiative, TCHC expects to screen all HOPE patients for benefits eligibility and get 85% of patients covered by a public insurance program. The expansion will allow TCHC to provide case management and other supportive health services including chronic care, health education, and medication adherence.
