LOS ANGELES, Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO:               

Care Harbor, a nonprofit, volunteer-based charity, is hosting a second free clinic this year for the uninsured and underserved of Los Angeles County on November 17-19, 2017. The clinic will provide medical, dental, vision and preventive care to up to 1,200 Angelenos per day who have nowhere to turn for the healthcare they need.




Care Harbor is also piloting a program to provide care to the homeless population in L.A. County. Working with County agencies, the initiative will provide transportation to/from homeless shelters, medical, vision and dental services at the Care Harbor clinic, as well as follow-up care, all of which are special challenges for this population. With approximately 58,000 homeless individuals in L.A. County, there's a great need to bring the basic healthcare services to those with no homes and poor access to healthcare.



WHAT:

Care Harbor will distribute free wristbands in advance of the clinic, on a first-come, first-served basis. Each person receives one wristband and each wristband grants admission to one person only. Wristbands are not removable without destroying them, so the person who receives it will be the one admitted to the clinic. Patients can choose the date they want to attend the clinic, and the selected date will be reflected on the wristband. Wristbands for children or patients who can't go to the clinic on their own will be given to the parent or caregiver. This person must accompany the patient to the clinic and only the patient will receive services.



WHEN/

WHERE:

Saturday, November 11

Ted Watkins Park Fieldhouse

1335 E. 103rd Street, Los Angeles




Sunday, November 12

Los Angeles Trade Technical College

2115 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles




Wristband distribution at both locations will begin at 10 a.m.
