Health and Wellness
Homelessness complicates efforts to treat health issues and health issues are complicated by homelessness. To provide health care, health care providers must be able to meet a person where he is and to listen to his needs. For best results, providers must treat the whole person – not just the medical diagnosis. This section includes practical guides for treating common medical conditions experienced by people who are homeless.
