Care for the Homeless fights homelessness by delivering high-quality and client-centered healthcare, human services and shelter to homeless individuals and families, and by advocating for policies to ameliorate, prevent and end homelessness.
Homeless people have a higher incidence than the general population for almost all health conditions, particularly hypertension, diabetes, HIV and sexually transmitted infections, and respiratory ailments, including asthma and bronchitis. Paramount to this increased incidence of health problems is the fact that the homeless lifestyle is typically characterized by factors outside the homeless person's control, such as where one lives, where one sleeps and what one eats. Additionally, homeless people cannot easily get health care and, because of their circumstances, health conditions are more difficult to treat.
