ALAB Resource Clinic offers encampment residents support for:

- Food, clothing & encampment support
We believe that everyone is an expert in their own lives and their own needs. We will not push unwanted care. We may inform people of options available to them, but the next steps will always be determined by you.
Our practice is informed by mutual aid practices. The people we support are our peers and friends, and are invited to provide feedback or work with our group. Our work is a collaborative effort that mutually benefits all through community building.
We work to break down barriers to people accessing care outside of and within our own organization. Barriers can exist due to a lack of resources such as phones or money, physical disability, mental health, and much more. We do our best to provide support for all in a mindful, flexible, and accessible way.
