In honor of International Women’s Day, ICH is highlighting one of our community partners: Health Care Without Walls (HCWW).
HCWW provides compassionate medical care, education and advocacy to homeless women and children in the greater Boston area.
Since 1999, HCWW has grown from one physician volunteering in two shelters to the largest volunteer physician organization in Massachusetts. Guided by a determination to address and improve health disparities experienced by women who suffer severe and complex socio-economic and health conditions, the organization sends volunteer physicians and paid nurse care managers into Boston area shelters and transitional family housing sites.
