ICHA and our COVID-19 Response – Learn More
In less than 15 years, Inner City Health Associates has become the largest homeless health organization in Canada, with 200 physicians and nurses offering Toronto’s homeless and precariously housed population with direct access to high-quality health services.
ICHA provides transitional primary care, psychiatry and palliative care, population health services, reaching people on the street and at shelter-based clinics, drop-in sites, encampments, COVID-19 isolation/recovery centres, and physical distancing hotels. ICHA aims to set the standard of excellence in homeless health service delivery and is dedicated to addressing deficits in the social determinants of health and to ending homelessness.
Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health, ICHA works with the City, hospitals and community health, population health and social support organizations to bring integrated care and support to the homeless community to improve individual and population health.
