Green Family Foundation NeighborhoodHELP

Household Centered

Care Addressing the critical need for enhanced primary and preventive care services in NeighborhoodHELP™ communities, the program has integrated health care services for household members. To overcome access barriers and to connect people to the health system, health care services are provided through mobile health centers at community sites; as needed, patients are referred to other community providers.

NeighborhoodHELP™ has incorporated four mobile health centers that provide a broad range of integrated primary, preventive, and behavioral health services, chronic disease management for household members, and 3D screening mammograms and breast health navigation services.
