It is the mission of the Unity Health Reach, Health Care for the Homeless program to provide quality comprehensive primary medical care to the homeless persons in the city of Rochester and the greater Rochester area. The HCHP will, through its outreach model, seek to improve access to comprehensive medical care for the homeless individual, while simultaneously affording each individual access to services needed to obtain gainful employment, permanent housing and other resources that may be beneficial to their individual situation, without regard to the individual’s ability to pay.
Health Reach HCHP provides comprehensive medical and dental care to homeless individuals and families who are currently experiencing homelessness in the Rochester City and Monroe County area. Services are provided at area homeless shelters, our Mobile Medical Unit and our clinic located at 819 West Main Street.
