Project HOME · Jefferson Health Program
Project HOME's Health Services Program is based at the Stephen Klein Wellness Center (SKWC) in North Central Philadelphia. In partnership with Jefferson Health System's Family Medicine and a community advisory board, the Wellness Center is designed to provide services that extend beyond medical care and focus on a more holistic approach that concentrates on wellness and prevention.
The model of care has, at its core, a patient-centered integrated approach, where a team of health and medical professionals seek to develop on-going healing relationships with those patients who, due to complexities of life and lack of local, affordable health care options, struggle with managing their chronic illness. As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), the SKWC is able to provide services regardless of insurance or a person's ability to pay.
The SKWC offers primary medical care, behavioral health and health education services, nurse care management, peer-led outreach, on-site legal counseling, a pharmacy, assistance with applying for health insurance benefits, and a fitness facility complete with childcare.
The Center is a critical next step to ending homelessness and helping Philadelphians heal. Providing homeless and low-income residents with quality health care, information and opportunities will empower them to adopt healthier lifestyles, thus creating healthier communities in the future.
