What Is It?

California is experiencing dual epidemics of homelessness and addiction. While solutions exist, certain populations continue to be impacted. The Safe Haven Clinic is an innovation designed to provide a low threshold first step in the continuum of services and care for people caught in cycles of homelessness and/or addiction.

Clinic services are integrated under one roof: 24/7 nursing, Street Medicine, Medical Respite, Sobering and Pharmacy care for people experiencing homelessness and/or addiction. With a low threshold entry, patients can stay 12 hours up to 10 days.

Why Safe Haven Clinics?

Current systems of care are failing people experiencing the co-occurring epidemics of homelessness and addiction. The COVID pandemic further amplifies foundational racial inequities. Combined Street Medicine, Medical Respite, Sobering and Pharmacy offers a synergistic solution and an alternative to emergency departments and jails.
