Mobile clinic offers free medical help to NYC’s homeless

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

More than 60,000 homeless people sleep in New York City shelters, and many of them are families in need of medical resources. That's where the New York Children's Health Project steps in.

The mobile clinic, in conjunction with Montefiore Medical Center, acts as a doctor’s office for those in need.

It comes at no cost to the homeless community for services, including physicals, flu shots and other urgent medical needs. 

The New York Children's Health Project is one of 27 programs operated by Children's Health Fund, a nationwide nonprofit which ensures high quality healthcare to America's most disadvantaged children. 

Anyone who would like to donate to the project can visit their website.
