EVMS Street Health

EVMS Street Health Mission Statement

Street Health is dedicated to bringing healthcare to the people on their own terms through Street Rounds, pop-up clinics in shelters and churches, and weekly breakfasts held at a local church. Our mission is to bridge the gap between this population and the healthcare system. We aim to determine and overcome the barriers that the homeless population normally face in receiving health care whether that is economic, social, or physical.
