Last week, our Healthcare for the Homeless Program team was honored at the Transitions 3rd Annual Volunteer Leader Awards Luncheon with the Partner in Excellence Award.
The Partner is Excellence Award goes to one service organization in recognition of a significant contribution and lasting impact on Transitions’ fight against homelessness. This partner is in the fight against homelessness for the long haul. They consistently support Transitions year after year, and demonstrate the true meaning of partnership.
In 2012, ECCHC embarked on the Healthcare for the Homeless Program and deliver health care and case-management services to homeless persons throughout the Midlands. With a permanent clinic on the Transitions campus, men and women utilize the ECCHC clinic site for their healthcare needs as opposed to the Emergency Room. In 2016, ECCHC provided services to 3,055 Transitions’ clients resulting in a savings of approximately $7 million dollars to our community.
Congratulations to Petra Edwards, NP, Jesse Myers, Toni Flegler, Kat Man and Kaneesha Jones.
