Mission Statement

We aim to serve those under-resourced and underserved people in New Jersey, especially those located within Emergency Shelters, Transitional Houses, Safe Heavens, and those who do not possess any type of shelter.

Description

We exist to provide underserved and under-resourced people in New Jersey free access to medical services. For this reason, we aim every homeless person in New Jersey can receive compassionate and qualified medical care, no matter who they are.

How We Do It

We have created a Targeted, Holistic, Continous, and Free approach:

GSSM’s targeted and holistic approach works with board-certified physicians, who are specially prepared to work with the underserved. Our registered physicians hold bi-monthly medical visits to Emergency Shelters & the homeless in the streets in order to improve the health & quality of life of unsheltered people. These services are provided through a network of medical volunteers, making medical care accessible and free to all people living in emergency shelters & the homeless in the streets, no matter their situation.

What we Mean

  • Targeted: We know those who need our services the most won’t come to us. We reach them where they are.
  • Holistic: We know the health of people experiencing homelessness is affected by various factors, and we care about all of them.
  • Continuous: We assign the same doctors with the same patients on every visit, as we believe in developing trust with our patients.
  • Free: We do not charge any fees to the facilities or patients we serve. We rely solely on donations.
