Many barriers exist to accessing health insurance. Families may face low wages, difficult working conditions, and overwhelming medical debt. HAVEN fills a critical gap in the healthcare landscape by providing primary care, reproductive health care, social services, and education to these community members free of charge. We also serve as a bridge to the formal healthcare system, providing access to free specialty care and guiding eligible patients through the health insurance enrollment process.
Every step you take brings us closer to a happier and healthier community. ¡ANDA! Come on!
