The Family Van is a free, Boston-based mobile health program designed to increase access to health and improve healthy behaviors by providing culturally and linguistically appropriate health services. Our mission is to educate, counsel, and assist community members in strengthening and protecting their bodies, minds and communities.
We serve communities with disproportionately high rates of preventable diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and HIV by bridging the needs of community members with the healthcare system.
Affiliated with Harvard Medical School, The Family Van’s success is due to a wide network of partners, volunteers and supporters. Together, we know that providing health care access to those in need results in early intervention, better care, healthier clients, and stronger communities.
