Healthcare for the Homeless

Horizon Healthcare for the Homeless 

We have been providing primary care and support services to Raleigh’s homeless community since 1987. Our Horizon Healthcare for the Homeless Program provides primary care, substance abuse services, diabetes education, behavioral health and many other services to people experiencing homelessness. As of April 2019, the program is anchored at Oak City Cares on Wilmington Street near Downtown Raleigh, but patients of all ages can be seen at all Advance Community Health locations.

We have an Outreach Center at the Women’s Center of Wake County, and are adding more outreach centers in the near future. Men, women, and children are welcome.

We have many partners in helping the homeless:

  • Wake County Continuum of Care Collaboration
  • Wake County Homeless Working Group
  • Wake County Housing and Homeless Coalition
  • North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness
