Review for Project Homeless Connect, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Due to budget problems and economic struggles, San Francisco has decreased services for the homeless. However, the homeless are not at too big of a loss as they might think. Thinking about the average American family, parents want to be able to provide their entire family with health insurance as a safety precaution. However, a typical healthy family only needs to visit their family physician once a year for an annual check up, which don’t add up to the amount being paid just to keep that insurance. These days, health prevention and promotion services, and even health professionals are accessible online. Local communities and schools are also addressing health issues under budgets, and they’ve been doing fine for years. These sources do not require additional health care coverage. With that said, health care clinics (not emergency rooms or hospitals) could save the economy some money by having more restricted hours. After all, flexible hours are a luxury and more for convenience; it isn’t a large factor in delivering quality health care nor does it directly impact each patient outcome. For those without health insurance such as myself, my last visit to a nurse practitioner was a week ago. However, prior to that, my last visit to a health professional without having health coverage was approximately five months ago. Therefore, homeless people are actually very fortunate to receive health services every two months.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The encounters with the (homeless) people. They're really regular people I'd like to get to know out in public, except people in public wouldn't randomly talk to each other like here at Project Homeless Connect.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
