Care for Those in Need

Lend a Hand

Everyone needs life-saving health care for a better life. You can help.

Nobody should have to choose between buying groceries or getting medical care  

Healthier residents improve the well-being of our entire community

Good health can feel like a goal that is out of reach for people who are struggling to make ends meet. That's why we depend on generous donors to provide free or low-cost health care services and other basic needs like healthy foods and wellness information for the most vulnerable people in our community.

With your help, everyone has the resources to lead a healthier life.

Care-A-Van Mobile Clinic

Working families, the uninsured and poor adults and children in Hampton Roads have a free and convenient option for medical care at the Bon Secours Care-A-Van. This donor-funded mobile clinic provides primary care and preventative care services including immunizations, school physicals, treatment for chronic illnesses, cancer screenings and even social service resources.

The Care-A-Van currently serves Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Newport News, zip codes designated as having too few primary care providers, high infant mortality, high poverty and high elderly populations.  Thanks to our donors, people who would be unable to afford and access healthcare or who don't have transportation can get primary care services directly in their neighborhood.

It takes tens of thousands of dollars to staff and operate the Care-A-Van each year. Your donation helps with operational costs and to update medical equipment so everyone can get the high quality health care they need, close to home.

Family Focus

Children need nurturing parents to thrive. Thanks to our donors, the Family Focus program helps moms and dads learn the skills for positive parenting. Classes and activities offer health, safety and education on childhood behaviors and development for all ages, from newborns to teens.

Family Focus facilitates parent-to-parent support and helps families receive valuable community resources for their unique needs and challenges. Educational programs even address difficult issues like child abuse and neglect, human trafficking, substance use, bullying and suicide prevention. 

Your donation for Family Focus will help parents create a more positive environment that helps children thrive.
