OUR COMMUNITIES

The Family Van works in underserved communities in order to improve the health of vulnerable individuals in Boston. We do this through prevention and education, one client at a time. By parking our Van in these communities, we bring care to those that have fallen through the cracks of our health care system. We also partner with organizations in our neighborhoods in order to empower people and creating self-efficacy.

 
The staff understands the people. They relate to the public. When you’re in the community, you understand the community. When you’re not in the community, then you really don’t understand the community. You don’t know what words can affect them. How you say things can affect their life.
