Peninsula Healthcare Connection

Peninsula Healthcare Connection is a non-profit medical and mental health clinic that provides services to the homeless of Santa Clara County, California. PHC is dedicated to helping the homeless move with dignity toward self-sufficiency. In an attempt to address all of the health needs of PHC clients, the clinic has been offering a free yoga class for the past three months. A local yoga teacher has generously donated her time for one hour each week.

The new yoga class is part of a larger effort in the clinic to provide healthy and meaningful activities for PHC clients. The class is the first step PHC is taking in this direction. PHC would like to offer more opportunities of this type in order to incorporate a holistic approach to wellness within a traditional clinical framework. It is PHC’s hope that this program will serve to alleviate some of the physical and psychological burdens of homelessness endured by their clients each day.
