America is the only country in the industrialized world which does not provide universal health care. Initiatives providing free medical care and social services to the homeless and uninsured population in the United States are very few but are making a remarkable difference in their communities. In Los Angeles’ West Side, teams of health workers bring critical medical services to people who are often averse to seeking treatment: a day filled with unexpected events in the life of a successfully but small initiative that combines free medical care and social services to the homeless and insured and that is making a big difference in their community.

There’s a lot of people out there in great need of medical attention that don’t have the ability to, either transfer themselves to the Venice Family Clinic, or a lot of people, and you’ll see this, have a lot of foot/leg problems from being on the streets and having to walk so much that they’re not able to get themselves to the Venice Family Clinic, so we take what we call ‘Street Medicine’ to them, and it has been a great success.
