Case Management

Overnight clients are offered housing-focused case management to identify their personal barriers to housing and get connected with the resources to achieve their goals of independence. Our case management team assists clients on their journey to self-sufficiency by: 

Clients are offered ongoing support from our housing navigators after they are settled in their new homes.  


Health Services

The Kearney Center provides a holistic approach to healthcare for individuals in our community who have always been underserved and misunderstood through health services. To set clients up for success, we provide free in-house medical care. 

Kearney on the Go

Supplies and services are delivered directly to unsheltered community members through our outreach program, Kearney on the Go. We meet clients where they are and build rapport to connect them with housing. Florida State University’s HOME Street Medicine program partners with Kearney on the Go to provide medical care to unsheltered clients.
