About Us


The mission of the Homeless Health and Empowerment Across Learning is to empower the homeless community with the knowledge to make better health decisions and improve their health outcomes.


Our strategy is to develop student educators who believe in the power that knowledge has in promoting self-awareness and improving health-based decision-making. We educate our clients on the consequences that their actions have on their bodies, from a scientific point of view and in a culturally-competent manner.


Our vision is to reduce the burden of inadequate access to primary care, and decrease excessive hospitalization costs by reducing avoidable visits to the ED.

To be informed about what I am doing to my body could save my life


It was very relevant to me because I was a long time smoker and drinker


It’s so cool to listen and see the effects of smoking and drinking


Useful and easy to understand


Eye opener to prevent future use
