Case Management:

Mission House clients work one-on-one with the case managers to develop a program planned to restore their independence.  Services for active clients include: obtaining identification, sources of income, housing, substance abuse referrals, medical assistance through our clinic, bus passes for jobs or doctor appointments, and clothing vouchers for interview/job clothing.

Clinic Services:
The Mission House clinic provides immediate medical care to those exhibiting pain or chronic medical issues that need attention.  The clinic operates on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings by appointment only.  Appointments are taken Monday through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patients must be people who are homeless and/or uninsured Duval County residents with monthly income below $1,915 and be at least 18 years of age.  For more information on eligibility to be a patient, see WeCare Patient Eligibility Guidelines.  We do not provide routine physical or gynecological exams or HIV testing. Volunteers research free medications from drug companies with the Patient Assistance Program for medications that are not available on order to Mission House.
