Aim: Facilitate care & care connections with our consumers/clients/patients
Domain: To plan and implement outreach services, including limited scope direct care, other than those of evening street health team, including FUMC Octagon & potential other site specific locations
Addendum to Domain: During COVID emergency phase our emergency response is: outreach services, obtaining supplies for comfort and symptom management for our vulnerable population housed at the hotels and rough sleepers.
Care Connections volunteers work to help the population we serve better navigate the healthcare system, build trust with their providers, decrease fear of judgement or mistreatment at clinical appointments, increase health literacy, and promote adherence to treatment plans. Our current CC outreach services include Monday evenings 4-5:30pm at McPike Park, Wednesday mornings 9:30-10:15am at Highway 30 bridge, and Wednesday mid-mornings 10:30-11:45am at Safe Haven. Times and locations for all upcoming CC outreach can be found on our Calendar.
