Please consider donating to our SPARK campaign: “TAKING IT TO THE STREETS: SHOWER, SOCKS, AND A DOCTOR”
As of 2020, of the 66,000 people experiencing homelessness in the LA area, over 46,000 are living on the street. The UCLA Student Run Homeless Clinics is joining with the LA City Department of Sanitation (LASAN) to provide free medical care and showers to people who are homeless.
On average, the program serves 400 shower guests weekly and as many as 2,000 patients per year. We provide on-site rapid medical assessments, urgent care, wound care, mental health screenings, vaccinations, medications, and chronic disease management while guiding them to reliable community clinics for the further care.
Our services are offered at no cost to these individuals. A gift of any size makes a huge difference, allowing us to continue and expand our efforts. Thank you for your support!
