The Homeless Health Initiative (HHI) is a volunteer health outreach program that provides free healthcare and health-related services to families living in local emergency housing shelters. Dedicated volunteers from HHI offer free, high-quality medical and dental care, health education, and other services to shelter residents in the Philadelphia area.
Women’s Wellness (WW) is a fun educational program that promotes well-being for mothers living in shelters. Through hands-on learning, mothers are empowered to make healthy choices in their current environment and in the future, for themselves and their families.
In this role, HHI volunteers are expected to assist WW group leaders to facilitate programming activities by:
Wednesdays, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
SPARK is a weekly fitness and nutrition program for children, empowering them to make healthy choices.
In this weekly, hourlong discussion workshop, parents/caregivers can talk with pediatric healthcare providers about common health topics.
Throughout the year, HHI hosts special events at various shelter locations.
