Healthcare For Those Experiencing Homelessness

NeighborHub Health is a system of health care and supportive service providers that create a seamless continuum of care for people experiencing homelessness in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. NeighborHub Health offers a comprehensive program of primary medical, dental, and behavioral health services, substance use disorder treatment, respite care, and referrals to other health services. Through the Health Care for the Homeless Program, we partner with experienced organizations and community providers to improve the overall health status of those experiencing homelessness.

As the only Federally Qualified Health Center in this area dedicated exclusively to meeting the complex health care needs of homeless individuals and families and recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), NeighborHub Health plays a critical role serving over 10,000 patients annually.

Program Services

Our experienced medical, dental, and behavioral health providers are familiar with the issues people face when confronted with poverty, homelessness, addiction, or mental health issues. We focus on treating the whole person – including behavioral health, dental care, medications, laboratory testing, health education, support, referrals to specialists, and help getting access to the types of services you need.  We offer both walk-in visits and scheduled appointments for medical, dental and behavioral health services, regardless of the patient’s ability to pay.

We accept most types of medical insurance. We will assist you in enrolling in Medicaid or Medicare if you qualify. As a federally qualified health center for individuals experiencing homelessness, we will request that you provide information about your housing, household status, and income. You are eligible for a sliding fee discount if your income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (FPG). 

Medical Care

NeighborHub Health employs experienced medical providers (medical doctors and nurse practitioners) who are board certified and licensed through the state of Ohio. They are compassionate individuals who are familiar with the medical challenges faced by individuals experiencing homelessness.  Even if you aren’t sick, it is necessary to have regular check-ups and preventative screenings.  Many conditions are caught early during check-ups leading to better health outcomes.  In-person or telehealth visits are available.
