The Hurtt Family Health Clinic has been a vital safety net provider for the homeless and uninsured of Orange County since 2000. The Orange County Rescue Mission (OCRM) started providing free medical care to the homeless through a converted mobile home at various sites throughout Orange County. In February 2008, OCRM relocated the Clinic to the Village of Hope (VOH), a 5.1 acre campus on the former Tustin Marine Air Base in the bordering city of Tustin. VOH is multi-service center combining 192 beds of single and family housing with on-site vocational training, a children’s development center, parenting classes and other supportive services.
The clinic was renamed the Hurtt Family Health Clinic in 2009 in honor of the generosity of the Hurtt Family, long time donors of OCRM. The Hurtt Family Health Clinic has created a model of care which brings services directly to the homeless, onsite at VOH and two mobile clinic vehicles through partnerships with school districts, churches, social services agencies and other community partners.
The clinic provides primary and preventative medical care, dental, mental health, optometry, and chiropractic care. The comprehensive care model is delivered with access to a full continuum of programs including health education, care and disease management, with an emphasis on women and children’s lifecycle needs.
