Medical & Dental
Accessible health care is one of the most urgent needs facing today’s homeless population. In addition to hosting agency outreach clinics for area mental health providers, The Stewpot has more extensive program offering for dental and medical needs.
In 1988, a partnership between The Stewpot and Community Dental Care, Inc. was established, resulting in what is today three fully equipped dental operations for primary care dental needs, as well as second phase dental care for dentures and partial prosthetics. If you need dental care, come to The Stewpot at 8 am weekdays with an approved residency letter of referral from a qualified night shelter or transitional housing program.
Parkland Hospital established The Karen and Elgin Ware Stewpot Medical Clinic in 2012 in recognition of the couple’s medical outreach at The Stewpot over a ten year period. This is a barrier-free, comprehensive clinic for the homeless population and located within The Stewpot. The clinic is open Monday through Friday on a walk-in basis.
