The Floating Hospital Health Care for the Homeless Program provides comprehensive health care services within numerous medically underserved areas. The HCH clinics are located in five homeless shelters in Brooklyn and the Bronx, and in NYC’s family intake center in the Bronx. In addition, other homeless families are transported from approximately 50 shelters and domestic violence safe houses throughout NYC and served at the Main Clinic in LIC, Queens.

The program also provides mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, health education, benefits counseling, dental services, and outreach services.


There are established linkages with hospitals contiguous to each clinic or intake center for medical, substance abuse, and mental health services.
