Volunteers provide over $500,000 of in-kind free medical care each year and oversee almost 7,000 patient visits. Women of Means relies on private donations and grants to help pay for the medical supplies and ancillary services that complement the free care.
To provide full clinical and administrative support for each doctor, Women of Means hires part-time nurse case managers and sends them to the busiest shelter sites in Boston. The nurses provide basic outreach and care coordination, patient education, follow-up when doctors are unavailable, and help direct patients to referral physicians and primary care providers.
Expenses also include recruiting, training and supervising the doctors, and stocking the shelters with the medical supplies and over-the-counter medicines that ensure a successful health outcome.
