Here to Help: "Health Brigade is known as a safe place to seek care for those who need it the most. We are committed to serving the most marginalized populations in the community–not only those with few resources, but also those most oppressed and stigmatized."

Featured Services: 

 

  1. ​Primary Care: "We provide primary care medical services to low income and uninsured residents in the Greater Richmond area to improve their health and wellness."

  2. Mental Health and Wellness: "We assist clients in identifying, understanding and resolving challenges. Therapists, doctors, nurses and other specialists work together as a team to meet each client’s needs."

  3. Health Outreach and Advocacy: "Health Outreach & Advocacy Services prides itself on being culturally-sensitive and welcoming of populations often marginalized and over-looked. From persons of color to LGBTQ individuals to those who are incarcerated or recently-released, Health Outreach & Advocacy Services has programming designed with accessibility in mind."
