A health care program based on Healthy People 2010 objectives provides screening and treatment to homeless children residing in a homeless shelter through a nursing center located on site. In addition to treatment for minor acute illnesses, children receive physical assessment and screening for health problems for which they are at increased risk. Interventions address these problems within the context of the complex psychosocial issues they face. Outcomes of interventions are monitored to support the value of case management and health education with these families. (Authors)
