The Squamish Helping Hands Society A Brief Introduction
Yearly Casual Positions
Medical Office Coordinator
Open Door Health provides primary care on site, at the Under One Roof facility, to those in our community who are struggling with substance use, pain, mental illness, experiencing or have experienced homelessness, and who face barriers to primary care. Many of these vulnerable individuals in our community do not have a family physician and have been affected by a plethora of societal inequities, discrimination, and lack of access to support and services. This low-barrier clinic is created in partnership with local physicians who provide clinic hours 3 half-days per week. The aim of the program is to deliver trauma-informed care and link interdisciplinary community-based services in a safe and comfortable setting for participants to reduce barriers to accessing care for the target population.
