The mission of the Health Resource Center of Cincinnati, Inc. is to serve homeless and at risk individuals with chronic mental, emotional, or substance use problems who are in need of psychiatric, counseling, or social services and whose needs are not being met by other agencies.
The Health Resource Center of Cincinnati, Inc. (HRC), a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, began operations in March 1995 as a Nurse Managed, full service mental health agency. Certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health, HRC serves homeless and indigent individuals with mentally illness or chemical addiction in urban Cincinnati through the provision of psychiatric, counseling and social services. Additionally, the agency serves as a multidisciplinary training site for graduate students in nursing, counseling, social work, and medicine from a variety of universities.
Since its inception HRC has served "the most difficult of the hard to serve" - those clients who have been labeled as non-compliant, or those clients who have difficulty navigating the complexity of traditional health care environments. Approximately 300 individual visits occur each month. The active mental health case load is 150 clients. Although many persons come to the clinic specifically for one service, they utilize multiple health disciplines as well as prescription assistance. Referrals are accepted from other mental health agencies, the Homeless Coalition network, the Cincinnati Health Network clinics and affiliates, and other Over-the-Rhine collaborators. HRC is funded by grants, donations, and contracts with local, state, and federal agencies.
The Health Resource Center of Cincinnati, Inc. is accredited by CARF and certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services. It provides community mental health and substance abuse services as a contracted agency of the Hamilton County Mental Health Recovery Services Board.
