Imagine what it feels like to be a woman experiencing homelessness, in need of medical and psychological care, exhausted, desperate, afraid, and vulnerable to the dangers around you:
- Physical and sexual assault
- Substance use disorder
- Illness including COVID-19
- Mental illness
- Human trafficking
- Extreme weather conditions
The Women’s Medical Clinic at St. Anthony Shrine is a Home for Healing that serves the complex health care needs of homeless women in Downtown Boston.
When a homeless woman walks into the Women’s Medical Clinic at St. Anthony Shrine, she is entering a welcoming environment that is private and safe, where she can help herself to coffee and snacks while waiting to be attended. She can use a clean bathroom and shower and be cared for in a fully-equipped examination room.
With your donation, we can open our doors to more women and provide a safe haven where they can receive the specialized care they need.
