RELIABILITY MAKES HOMELESS-CLINIC VOLUNTEER EFFECTIVE

SHARE RELIABILITY MAKES HOMELESS-CLINIC VOLUNTEER EFFECTIVE

Dave Brown has volunteered for the Wasatch Homeless Health Care Program at the Fourth Street Clinic for the past five years. His willingness to be available in an emergency, reliability and knowledge about the clinic adds to his effectiveness in working with a clientele that is often forgotten. He assisted in expanding the computer system to serve the patients better. He has also raised funds throughout the community to keep the clinic going and he has trained volunteers.

Brown set up the University of Utah Medical School Saturday Clinic in order to give medical students an opportunity to obtain clinical skills. He has been an invaluable key facilitator in allowing the Wasatch Homeless Health Care Program to serve the primary health care needs of the Salt Lake area's homeless individuals and families.Did you know that there are a number of support groups that can help you?
