My wish is her command…I love librarians!
I heard back from the Sladen Library at Henry Ford Hospital in regards to searching out HF would help the homeless….of course I spoke to the lovely Ms. Yolanda before I got this answer …but at least I got a few more references..and I am sharing them with you now!!
Thank you for your question. I have found out a few things that I hope you find helpful. I spoke to someone in the Social Work department here at the hospital, and they recommended that you take the individuals to the Herman Kiefer health clinic for care. Herman Kiefer is part of the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Program and they are equipped to assist underinsured and uninsured people. For more information
and directions please visit: http://www.dethealth.org/index.php?id=15
(Note-which I just looked up and is located at 1151 Taylor Street Detroit, MI 48202 and the number is 313 876-4826)
Also, Henry Ford Hospital is affiliated with the CHASS Center which operates three locations throughout the downtown area. According to their website, they are not a “free” clinic and do bill for services, but no one is denied medical care because of an inability to pay.

I hope this information helps you out in your community work.
It sure does!! Thank you very much!!
