Welcome to SHOW

Student Health Outreach for Wellness (SHOW) is a tri-university, student-led initiative providing free health care and education for individuals experiencing homelessness in Phoenix, Arizona.

Our mission is to provide individualized, interdisciplinary health care for those experiencing homelessness in our community. The integration of SHOW into already existing health care systems will provide expanded and additional aid to this high-risk population. We hope that through a joint effort of students, faculty, and professionals from the three Arizona state universities, those served will benefit from a wide variety of expertise and talents of our team.

The show story

In May of 2013, a dedicated group of students, faculty, and staff from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and The University of Arizona began developing Arizona’s first student-run clinic for individuals experiencing homelessness. This innovative, service-learning program was named the Student Health Outreach for Wellness (SHOW) Community Initiative.

A “pioneer” project for the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education, SHOW strives to incorporate interprofessional practices and foster community partnerships in ways that leverage the resources of individuals and organizations for the public good.

Since 2013, more than 150 students from 16 professional programs across the three universities ranging from nursing, social work, nutrition, medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant, audiology, speech pathology, and physical therapy to business, journalism, and computer science, have worked together with faculty and community partners on the design and development of the program.

Following a period of intensive development, SHOW officially opened for our first patients during the summer of 2015.


What we do

SHOW provides a wide range of services to individuals experiencing homelessness in the greater Phoenix area, including:

  • Medical Care
  • Psychiatric Care
  • Health Promotion
  • Community Outreach
  • Health Care Literacy (coming soon)


the population we serve

SHOW serves a diverse range of individuals experiencing homelessness in the greater Phoenix area.

Recent evaluations estimate that over 27,000 Arizona citizens experience homelessness each year. 92% of those at risk for experiencing homelessness in Maricopa County are single adults without family connections. While the majority of these adults will not remain chronically homeless, ongoing health and wellness care remains a high priority.

SHOW works alongside a wide array of organizations at the Human Services Campus in Downtown Phoenix. This campus services 1,000 individuals per day, providing over 60 different resources and services for the homeless population in Phoenix. A key aspect of the campus is the Health Care for the Homeless clinic, which provides healthcare services, including clinical care and outreach.Healthcare for the Homeless provides care Monday- Friday. SHOW extends this care providing clinic services on weekends while also providing a wide array of specialty services that are not regularly provided.
