EO Gives Back

On June 27, 2010 by Team EO in INSIDE INFORMATION

Lately  it seems like much of the economic news is bleak as everyday someone else breaks the stereotype of poor, jobless, homeless, and /or  insurance-less. At these times it is good to remember that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and this glimmer however small is reason for hope. Hope can come from all places even unexpected ones.  “During the social revolution of the 1960s, the Haight Ashbury Free Clinics were established to help the thousands of young people on the street in the Haight Ashbury district whose lives were affected by drug and alcohol abuse, mental and physical problems. With nowhere to turn, they found treatment and support when traditional services turned their backs on them. Since then, The Clinics have grown to become one of the largest multi-service providers in Northern California.”

EO is honored to partner with the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic as it engages with the community through donations of Sanitizing Gels, Liquid Hand Soaps and Body Lotions . Our goal is to support them with their mission of increasing “access to health care for all and improve the health and well being of their clients. The Clinics provide free, high quality, demystified and comprehensive health care that is culturally sensitive, non-judgmental and accessible to all.”

EO Products recognizes the innovative thinking of the Clinic by their 2005 undertaking a “major  initiative to integrate Primary Care with  Substance Abuse and Mental Health Treatment by unifying these services with Case Management. To accomplish this, The Clinics collected all outpatient services within its two primary care clinics by dramatically consolidating the number of facilities while at the same time increasing treatment space.  This unique client-centered approach is the hallmark of The Clinics’ approach to health care  for San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations.”
