SOME is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation's capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time.
SOME’s Medical Clinic provides healthcare services to the homeless and most vulnerable members of our community without regard to insurance or ability to pay. These medical services would not otherwise be available to our clients. The Medical Clinic offers a full range of services including HIV care, podiatry services, gastroenterology, lab work, and treatment for diabetics, and works closely with our substance abuse program to get our clients the help they need. Our part-time ophthalmologist provides free ophthalmologic care for diabetes, glaucoma, AIDS, and eye injuries, as well as routine eye exams, to the homeless and extremely poor. The Medical Clinic treats an average of 30 patients each day. We invite you to join us.
Note: These positions can be found in the Health Care category, too.
