About

Hoya Clinic, a student-run free clinic at Georgetown University School of Medicine, is hoping to expand its services and broaden outreach to our community by creating a shoe drive and foot care clinic to serve men and women experiencing homelessness in Washington D.C. 

People experiencing homelessness spend a lot of time on their feet, traveling an average of five miles per day, while sometimes enduring harsh conditions [1]. For most of these individuals, access to podiatric care and protective shoes is often limited. As a result, studies have shown that up to two-thirds of those experiencing homelessness will encounter foot problems [1]. It is our hope that the Hoya Foot Care Clinic can start to address the needs of these individuals by providing them with quality shoes and podiatric care.  

Hoya Clinic is excited to partner with Catholic Charities' Harriet Tubman Women’s Shelter this March to provide the Hoya Foot Care Clinic to the 200 women who are served by the shelter. We are currently seeking donations to purchase new women’s sneakers, socks, and foot hygiene products. Any donation of any amount will help us make a meaningful difference. Thank you for your support.
