Our Mission

Sacramento Street Medicine was created to provide high-quality, patient-led medical care for people experiencing homelessness. We meet the needs of the people we serve where they are—on the streets and in encampments throughout Sacramento.


About Us


Our Vision

We believe healthcare and housing are human rights. By utilizing our education in medicine and our passion for human rights, we change lives, build services, and restore hope and power. We work today in the hope that that one day, we won’t have to deliver care on the streets.


It is important to acknowledge that our work does not exist in a vacuum. Our organization was created against the backdrop of a fundamentally unequal society where systemic issues ensure that some people do not have equitable access to housing, healthcare, and other resources that they need to survive. More broadly, our country continues to struggle with issues of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, classism, and ableism across every major institution; the healthcare system is no exception.


With this backdrop in mind, we remain dedicated to combating systemic biases in the healthcare system through our internal and external initiatives. In particular, we recognize that individual introspection is essential for achieving progress, as we as individuals must consider whether we unconsciously perpetuate the very issues we seek to address. More importantly, we recognize that acknowledging these issues is not enough. As individuals and as an organization, we have a responsibility to actively fight for a future in which our organization is no longer needed.
