Neighborcare Health‘s intense impact in Seattle reaches back to the 1967, when it initiated The Open Door Clinic to address disparities in healthcare access for residents of certain Seattle districts. From that starting point, Neighborcare pioneered a dental clinic only one year later, and now provides services in a far-flung number of settings from Pike Place Market to a St. Vincent de Paul thrift store. It has also creatively expanded on the assistance it provides to include mental health and social work support, and in-home care to residents in Seattle Housing Authority communities.
The Neighborcare Health Youth Clinic at 45th Street cares for youth and young adults, ages 12-26, who are homeless or have been homeless at some point in the last 12 months. The Youth Clinic in particular is in great need of numerous gifts-in-kind.
