Project Lux

Project Lux Logo

Project Lux is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bridging the gap between healthcare and houselessness. One of the ways we accomplish this is through directly assisting individuals experiencing houselessness access health insurance. By becoming Certified Enrollment Counselors (CECs) through Covered California, members enroll unhoused clients into programs such as Medi-Cal at a variety of different shelters/organizations on a weekly basis. Our current sites include the Skid Row Community Refresh Spot and Mobile Clinic Project. We also put together care packages with food/water and other basic necessities, distributing them directly to the unhoused community. At our enrollment fairs, we provide additional resources including referrals to nearby clinics in which members can point clients towards the care that they need. Lastly, we focus on advocacy, curating useful resources and calling for change at a higher level. We hope that this multifaceted approach to aiding the unhoused community will help us create a ripple of change.
