Are health care services available for homeless youth?

Yes, health care for the homeless projects (and health centers in general) provide a wide range of primary care and other services to children experiencing homelessness. While youth of any age can be served at HCH clinics, laws vary state-by-state about the types of services that youth can receive without parental consent. For minors who are not together with their family, parental consent can be a challenge to obtain. In these circumstances, providers will do everything they can to find the appropriate parent who will consent to care.
