To increase the accessibility of quality alternative healthcare for people experiencing homelessness and low income. We do this by:
- Coordinating & developing direct service programs providing alternative healthcare options
- Providing information & support to practitioners, activists, members of the homeless & low-income communities, and others who share our mission of increasing access to alternative care
- Tracking and compiling research on the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of alternative health care advocates for appropriate healthcare public policy.
Access to quality healthcare is a right, not a privilege, and it should not be denied or limited because of economic status. Holistic healthcare practices such as acupuncture & oriental medicine, naturopathy, massage therapy, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, midwifery, and homeopathy are important options in modern healthcare and should be available to all. People experiencing homelessness and low income have the right to participate in the creation of public policies and programs that affect their access to healthcare.
