Every Wednesday evening from 5 to 7 p.m. our Adolescent Drop-In program offers young people (aged 14 to 24) free, walk-in access to medical care and social services at our family practice, located at 1348 Bainbridge Street. No appointment or insurance is required.
Our goal is to provide a “one-stop” shopping experience for youth, who are able to access basic medical care, speak with a case manager or other social service provider about housing, education, vocational training, referrals to counseling and mental health services, legal issues and other concerns. Our system allows patients to have multiple needs met in one visit and under one roof.
Our drop-in team consists of clinicians, case managers, medical assistants, and a HIV/STI testing counselor. From time to time we bring in other staff or outside service providers to share information about potentially helpful resources for local youth.
