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.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Briarwood Family Residence website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
