Who We Are:
Since 1985, Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program’s (BHCHP) mission has been to ensure unconditionally equitable and dignified access to the highest quality health care for all individuals and families experiencing homelessness in greater Boston. We care for over 12,000 individuals experiencing homelessness yearly and are committed to ensuring that every one of these individuals has access to comprehensive health care in more than 60 locations to serve some of our community’s most vulnerable—and most resilient—people.
We have always sought to do work that is transformational: recognizing our shared humanity; centering dignity, compassion, mutual respect and supporting the right of every individual to access the highest levels of health care and every staff member to reach their fullest potential. We remain committed to building bridges and breaking down barriers, including systemic racism which harms us all. Our community-based health care services are compassionate, dignified, and culturally appropriate, incorporating social determinants of health, with the goal of breaking down the physical and systemic barriers that our patients face.
Bilingual, Bicultural, LGBTQIA identifying, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are encouraged to apply.
