About Care & Connect Mobile Health

Our Care & Connect Mobile Health program breaks down barriers to health care by providing free medical and dental care to people who lack access to medical care. Whether patients live in rural communities or in a houseless encampment, we come alongside our neighbors to care for them where they are.

When someone boards our van, they’re met by a team of staff and volunteer health professionals. They’re able to access a menu of services – both medical and dental – free of charge. Patients can be seen for urgent dental services like extractions and fillings. Or, for more complicated dental work, they’re referred to low-cost specialty services. They can visit with a nurse who can provide blood pressure checks, diabetes checks, mental health screenings or vaccinations. After, the nurse explains the screening test results and offers next steps, like getting connected to further care.

Most importantly, when someone steps off our van, we want them to feel supported, cared for, and seen.

Find a Clinic

We’re excited to welcome you onboard our big red van! Clinics are held regularly across Oregon and Washington. We offer emergency dental services, like extractions and fillings, and basic health care screenings. We can help connect you to follow-up care and explain the options you have to help take care of your health in the future.

Note that some clinics require you to make an appointment, others are walk-in only, and some are a combination.
