About Project HOPE Street Medicine Program
Project HOPE is a Street Medicine team that cares for the homeless population in Wheeling, WV. HOPE stands for the Homeless Outreach Partnership Effort. We operate by going on rounds to homeless camps and homeless shelters, dispensing medical care. We also run multiple exam rooms, at the local soup kitchen for example, to provide privacy for our patients. All patients deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of socioeconomic status.
