MUSHROOM

Medical Student Taking the blood pressure of a patient

Modeled after the "Operation Safety Net" program in Pittsburgh, our FMIG program is affectionately known as MUSHROOM - Multidisciplinary UnSheltered Homeless Relief Outreach Of Morgantown.

This program brings together medical, nursing, dental, social work and other health professional volunteers on "street rounds". We go by foot to those places where we are needed most: along the rivers and creeks, down the back alleys of downtown, and under the bridges.

Our goal is to reach out to those most marginalized from society. We help provide them with the basics of care including food, water, clothing, and basic medical intervention. More importantly, we offer a gentle hand, a warm smile, and a witness to their dignity as fellow human beings.

MUSHROOM Volunteer Street Rounds

Volunteers for street rounds please note the following:
The meeting place for Thursday evening street rounds has been changed due to construction near the Bartlett House. The Thursday evening groups will now meet in the lower level of the Pleasant Street Parking Garage at 6:45 pm. You will also need to bring $1.50 in coins to feed the parking meter. (click here for details and directions to new meeting place)
