Join us at our weekly health screenings to help reduce the healthcare inequalities among individuals experiencing homelessness. During these events, members provide blood pressure screenings, mental health screenings, and promote cardiovascular education. This year we will be expanding the resources we provide at our screenings to further our mission of informing the homeless population about their cardiovascular health and overall well-being.
This year, we will be implementing EKG events where members can participate in screening homeless individuals for any cardiovascular issues using our handheld EKG devices! We will have a provider at our screenings once a month to assist in reading the EKG results!
Our donation drives allow us to advance our mission and help one another grow. Members work together in assembling care packages and distribute them to the homeless during our screenings. With your help, you can make an impact that leaves you empowered and fulfilled.
This year, we will offer a greater diversity of volunteering opportunities to our members beyond our usual screening events. We will partner with local service organizations to set up regular volunteer events where members can gain valuable volunteer experiences and make an impact on our community.
Learn more about how you can advocate for inclusion of homeless people in health equity and address existing disparities. Attend our advocacy events to learn more about existing homeless inequities and create a positive impact through taking part in discussions, writing letters to government officials, and more.
Our fundraising activities not only enable the functioning of our chapter, but also address the specific needs of the Orlando homeless population. We focus on developing projects that will increase the organization’s visibility and deepen our connections with our community. Our fundraising efforts extend from the popular partial proceeds and bake sales, to strategic events with other organizations, which happen both in-person and through virtual platforms.
Interested in meeting new people and having some fun? Come out and join us at our monthly social events where we get to enjoy some unique recreational activities. The purpose of our socials is for all club members to get to know each other beyond our screenings. Follow our instagram and stay tuned for upcoming events!
