Every Sunday, we provide free medical screenings, consultations, and basic treatments to our homeless guests. Volunteer medical personnel lend their time to care for the health needs and concerns of those on the streets, many of whom would not otherwise receive medical care.
During the rest of the week, Ladle Fellowship staff follow up with our Street Corner Care patients, accompanying them to doctor's appointments, helping them understand their paperwork and medications, coaching them through the healthcare system, and providing invaluable relational support and encouragement. Sometimes this intervention leads to more comprehensive care, as sick or disabled individuals finally receive the support they need to navigate the complex homeless services system. Bridging the gap in this way has saved lives.
