Community Outreach Services
Packard Health is reaching out in new ways to our under-served and most vulnerable neighbors across Washtenaw County. In collaboration with our community partners, we are building programs that are innovative, effective and compassionate.
Packard Health Office in Ypsilanti
In 2016 we opened a new office location to provide services in Ypsilanti, which has the largest medically under-served population in Washtenaw County.
Medical Clinic at the Robert J. Delonis Center, Shelter Association of Washtenaw County
At the Delonis Center, we reach out to vulnerable homeless clients and seek to integrate their care into our established primary care practice. Packard Health operates the medical clinic at the Delonis Center.

The Ann Arbor Housing Commission and Avalon Housing have created a safety net of services at Miller Manor, an affordable housing unit. With the right supportive services, the chronically homeless can become successful tenants. Packard Health provides medical care at the building and also reaches out to other Avalon clients around the community.
Family Shelter Assessment and Referral Program - FSHARP
In the course of a week, Lori Bennett, Nurse Practitioner, visits INH-Alpha House, SafeHouse Center, Ozone House and Staples Family Center. She offers care and connections, identifying immediate health needs, making referrals, setting up appointments to see her at Packard Health or The Corner Health Center. Lori's specialty is building trust with families in distress.
Lori created the model of care, FSHARP. It is a collaboration between the Corner Health Center and Packard Health, and funded by the Washtenaw Coordinated Funders.
Emergency Room Partnerships to Treat Opioid Addiction
People who come to the ERs at St. Joseph Mercy and Michigan Medicine hospitals seeking assistance with opioid addiction are safely transitioned to the care of Packard Health's addiction specialists. Packard Health's Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program delivers the most effective intervention to treat opioid use disorder, and with therapy and FDA-approved medication, MAT has saved many lives and allows patients to work, love, and care for their children. Packard Health is a singularly reliable source for MAT in the county.Meet our Outreach Team
