  Mount Carmel Mobile Coach Program

The Mount Carmel Community Mobile Coach provides free basic medical care to those in need.  For the underserved to the homeless, those with limited access can receive free urgent healthcare, mental health counseling, work physicals, vaccinations and referrals to community health programs.

A 40-foot mobile medical coach visits nine sites in central Ohio on a rotating schedule. It functions as an urgent health care center on wheels staffed by a physician, nurse practitioner, registered nurses, medical technicians, caseworkers, and data entry staff who provide care and support for these patients.

Street Medicine

Many of the central Ohioans living on the land do not have access to regular medical care. That led to the creation of the Street Medicine program, an extension of Mount Carmel Community Outreach.

The Street Medicine team is comprised of a physician or nurse practitioner, a registered nurse, an emergency medical technician and a homeless patient advocate. Together they go out weekly to search for individuals in homeless camps and provide them with on-site treatment, education, resources, and referrals.


     Franklin County P.A.T.H. Outreach Services (Southeast, Inc.)

(Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness) P.A.T.H. is a formula grant program administered by the Center for Mental Health Services, a component of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).   P.A.T.H. was designed to support service delivery to individuals with severe mental illnesses (SMI) who may also have co-occurring substance use disorders, who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, and are not yet linked with traditional community mental health services.  The ultimate goal is connecting individuals to mainstream mental health services as a way of working towards the elimination of homelessness for this population.  P.A.T.H. services include community-based outreach, mental health, substance abuse, case management and other support services, as well as a limited set of housing services.
