Mid-City Christian: "What is Street Corner Care"?

Street Corner Care
Recently we met with and navigated 9 Ladle guests to get
appropriate medical treatment through Street Corner Care.  We are
thankful for this new ministry of First Presbyterian Church!  But many
have asked us, "What is Street Corner Care"?  Street Corner Care aims to
increase access to healthcare for our local urban poor and homeless by
connecting them with volunteer doctors, nurses, psychologists, and
social workers and giving them space to talk about their health
conditions.  The goal is to decrease barriers to care and increase the
depth of our relationships with the homeless community.  This ministry
meets on the courtyard during Ladle twice monthly and assists our guests
with physical, psychological, and spiritual issues.  We are recruiting
doctors, nurses, and social workers!  Please email for more information.
