Thanks to our donors, friends, advocates, board and staff, since the COVID-19 emergency began Street Health has been continuing to deliver vital community healthcare services. We are see 100-150 people each day.
The initial client contact point has been moved outside our building at 338 Dundas St. E and a plexiglass shield has been installed. This area also offers a handwashing station (left side of photo).
Staff screeners, provide the first point of access to information and services including: urgent nursing care, overdose prevention site, community health, identification and mail storage, and harm reduction supplies.
Several long-time supporters and community partners have been helping Street Health obtain supplies including: safety masks, hand sanitizer and personal protect equipment. This support is deeply appreciated.
Thanks to our donors, Street Health also continues to provide personal care and hygiene. In the past few weeks available items have included: soap, socks and with the upcoming holiday weekend we also had some donated goodies which brightened people’s day! Thank you Rotman School of Business Management.
“In this unprecedented situation, the generosity and kindness of groups and individuals is really making a difference,” states Kapri Rabin, Executive Director. “From our clients and our staff, thank you for this caring support.”
Finally a reminder: along with social distancing and hand washing, harm reduction needs to practised each and every day >>>
