How we help homeless families
The Floating Hospital family health network is New York City's single largest provider of primary healthcare services to homeless families, providing more than 40,000 patient visits annually.
Founded more than 140 years ago, we are often the only healthcare option available for the city's poorest, uninsured, and disenfranchised children and their families, and we never refuse needed treatment because a homeless family is unable to pay. Nearly 50% of clients are not covered by insurance at all.
Our compassionate and culturally sensitive staff are committed to ensuring that our patients receive high quality and respectful healthcare—the same that most New Yorkers expect when visiting their own family doctor.
