Street Medicine KC
Street Medicine KC (SMKC) works to ensure access to quality health care and social services for Kansas City’s unreached, underinsured, uninsured, and service resistant homeless as well as at-risk populations. SMKC seeks to provide “street medicine”, a systematic outreach and approach to provide medical care directly to those living and sleeping on the streets through mobile services such as walking teams, medical vans, and outreach clinics. Street Medicine is the first essential step in achieving higher levels of care through assertive, coordinated, and collaborative medical management and social services. SMKC also provides mental health services at a managable location along with a medical clinic that provides basic health assistance as well as dental and optometry services.
The mission of SMKC is to provide access to quality healthcare for Kansas City's homeless population.
SMKC provides direct medical and and behavoiral care to those living and sleeping on the streets.
