Meet Carmen! A beloved BHCHP nurse and a member of our 2021 marathon team!

Krassi Diehl, 42, originally from Lexington MA started running 10 years ago for health reasons.

Katherine Record, 37, originally from Winstead CT and a graduate of Georgetown, Duke and Harvard has been running since high school. 

Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program’s AmeriCorps Program is unique in a plethora of ways, not the least of which is that it is one of four corps set in a health care setting in the entire country. BHCHP has valued service corps since 2005 when we first started accepting corps members into our program and, after seeing the value corps members provide, we’ve maintained a service corps program ever since.

What started as a request for art work evolved into a three day facelift for the BHCHP medical clinic located at St. Mary’s.

Remarks from our Chief Medical Officer Jessie Gaeta

The past year has been a tough one for many of us, but it was particularly hard for those experiencing homelessness. 

Statement from our Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, Sonja Spears and our CEO Barry Bock 

I’ve been conducting writing workshops for years. First at Boston College, for the New England veterans. Now online, for the world. 

Sharon Morrison was fresh out of nursing school in 1997,when she joined Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program as a nurse caring for our youngest patients experiencing homelessness on our Family Team, and at our clinic at Suffolk Downs …. and she has been with us ever since.
