At least once each week, professionals from various organizations ride along with our outreach teams:
Every Tuesday, the Louisville Metro Health Department accompanies us to do testing in their mobile unit, distribute safe sex supplies, and connect houseless people with treatment options.
Dr. Pam Karns, as well as street medics, certified herbalists and nurses, accompany on outreach to tend to medical emergencies and chronic conditions as needed. We also assist with medications, hospital transport, and pharmacy pick up.
Pet Care Partnerships
To assist with the care of pets who live alongside many houseless people, we have partnered with animal services like the Kentucky Humane Society’s SNIP Clinic to make sure pets are fixed and vaccinated, Saving Sunny for pet food donations, and My Dog Eats First, which provides medical care during emergencies.
Public Health Events
We partnered with the Louisville Metro Health Department to facilitate and ensure that our houseless community received the Covid 19 vaccine.
Feed Louisville was also instrumental in the creation of the Clean Collaborative along with the Health Department, Solid Waste Management and RCS to humanely assist houseless folks during street cleanings.
