The Mobile Medical Van serves youth and young adults outdoors
Our Mobile Medical Van, the first program of its kind in the nation, connects with youth in the evening. The van is a national model for providing critical care and survival aid to youth in need.
We are adding a new stop at Copley Square!
A typical night used to be at Park Street station on the Boston Common and then at Harvard Square in Cambridge. This month we have added a new stop in Copley Square, in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. As the weather warms, Copley Square becomes a popular spot for youth. We hope to connect with more youth in need.
Park Street 5-6pm
Copley Square 6:15-7pm
Harvard Square 7:30-8:30pm
What happens on the van?
At each location, Outreach staff mingle with passersby, connecting with youth. On the van, youth can take respite and receive survival essentials and medical care while beginning a conversation about how to get more help.
