Family Health Centers of San Diego’s (FHCSD) Healthcare for the Homeless Program serves the entire County of San Diego through a network of community health clinics, community based support services and partnerships with other social service agencies and homeless providers.

Services

FHCSD’s Healthcare for the Homeless Program reduces barriers and increases access to quality health care to those experiencing homelessness by providing primary and emergency medical services. The program also provides dental, vision, mental health, substance use disorder and case management services.
