Background Statement

In 1970, a group of parishioners from St. John the Baptist Church in Costa Mesa, CA gathered to discuss how to care for those living in poverty in Orange County. Share Our Selves (SOS) was established out of those conversations to provide for the most serious concerns of those in need. Early activities included bringing lunches to schoolchildren in Santa Ana, giving free health care to local farm workers, and matching families to give gifts and food for the holidays. Almost 50 years later, our founders’ compassion, generosity, and hard work has led to an organization that continues to expand care services across our nine locations, uphold the basic human rights of everyone in the community, and develop innovative solutions to address the systemic nature of poverty.

Today, SOS is a nationally recognized health center offering a broad range of personalized and comprehensive services that focus on the needs of the low-income, homeless and marginalized populations in our community. We are one of only 1,300 designated Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). We emphasize care of the whole person by offering multifaceted and integrated services, including homeless services, medical care, dental care, behavioral health services, pharmacy services, social services, and women’s and children’s health care. We are dedicated to addressing the social determinants of health that are a particular challenge for Orange County’s most vulnerable residents. Paramount to our mission is a deep desire and commitment to make a meaningful, measurable impact on our community and help the people we serve lead lives full of hope.

SOS Medical Clinic

The SOS Medical Program provided over 46,000 provider encounters in FY 2016-2017; with over 81% living at or below 100% of Federal Poverty Level and 60% uninsured. The clinics provide comprehensive primary care, chronic care programs, specialty clinics, dispensary, laboratory, access to medical specialists, and health education.
Budget  $13,544,730.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Ambulatory & Primary Health Care
Population Served General/Unspecified Homeless At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 
Patients who come to SOS have access to high quality, comprehensive services and referrals for specialty care. SOS is able to assist patients with no other access to care - patients who would have gone to the ER for treatment. Centers like SOS free up room in the ER.
Our Women’s Health services will provide comprehensive women’s services to promote the health of our female patients, including gynecological care, breast exams, well-women exams, breast and cervical cancer screenings, and health education. As part of the Marisla Fund grant awarded to SOS, our goal is to provide Well-Women Exam and/or Clinical Breast Exam appointments for 80 women each month.
We provide early diagnosis and prevention, and immunization programs, which will reduce the likelihood of illness in our clients.
Our Medication Management program will help our clients reduce adverse drug effects by helping them understand their medications better.
Program Long-Term Success 
SOS has established a seamless system of care for our patients to ensure they will get the right treatment at the right time. Our success will come from a combination of dynamic partnerships, a strong effort in building leadership, integration of services and systems, innovation, and sustainability. As part of our FQHC designation, we will become a preferred medical home to our community, because of our high quality, accessibility, and excellent patient care.
Program Success Monitored By 
At SOS we measure our success through our new partners, shared technology, reductions in costs, and high quality.
We also monitor our patients’ satisfaction regularly as part of our Patient Experience Action Community (PEAC) grant, through which we have taken the initiative to find innovative ways to improve the experience at our clinic for our patients.
The Clinical Pharmaceutical Services Department uses surveys to evaluate and improve both the patient and clinician experience.  We use focus groups, online surveys, and self surveys for continuous quality improvement.  All surveys have been overwhelming positive with requests to continue to expand our services.
Peer reviews are completed to examine the work of peers and determine whether the provider under review has met accepted standards of care in rendering medical services.  A medical peer review may be initiated at the request of the CEO, Medical Director, Dental Director, patient complaint, provider, or insurance carrier.
Examples of Program Success 
In June 2012, SOS was awarded distinction as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and Healthcare for the Homeless Provider.
In June 2015, SOS achieved national recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH); Level 3 - highest level.

SOS Dental Clinic

The SOS Dental Program provides comprehensive preventative and restorative oral health for both adults and children residing in Orange County. Services are inclusive of hygiene, transitional partials, root canals, radiographs, restorations, extractions and dentures. In FY 2016-2017 the dental program provided over 15,000 provider encounters.
Budget  $3,484,233.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Dental Health Care
Population Served General/Unspecified Homeless At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  In addition to our patients receiving comprehensive care, SOS also addresses emergency dental needs. Currently, 34% or our daily visits are emergencies, which helps divert patients from the Emergency Room.
Program Long-Term Success  The Dental Clinic will provide emergency, diagnostic, restorative and preventative dentistry, focusing on preserving patients' natural permanent teeth whenever possible, to patients at all of our locations. Patients will have improved oral health and overall health. Furthermore, the medical and dental clinics are working together to integrate their services as we continue to create a seamless system of care for our patients. Our diabetic medical clinic patients are all now getting oral health assessments as a part of this integration.
Program Success Monitored By 
The SOS Dental Clinic is monitored by Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) standards, which are defined an approach to quality management that builds upon traditional quality assurance methods by emphasizing the organization and systems. It focuses on the "process" rather than the individual, recognizes both internal and external "customers" and promotes the need for objective data to analyze and improve processes.
Examples of Program Success 
We are one of only 12 clinics in the nation and the only one in Orange County to have received the Children's Oral Healthcare Access Program grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). This grant was awarded for our SOS-El Sol Wellness Center, located at the El Sol Science and Arts Academy in Santa Ana. This clinic represents our continued goal of increasing our patient population throughout Orange County and is an important resource for an underserved part of our county.
SOS was also the only clinic in Orange County to be awarded a specialty dental grant from the county for treating seniors.

Social Services

Social Services provides food, clothing, financial aid, resources and referrals, training and education, legal aid, food stamps, free or low-cost cell phones and special seasonal programs for over 100,000 individuals each year. As a direct access agency, we provide immediate help to our clients without being restricted by appointments. Social Services is the longest running department of SOS, and is distinguished as being 90 percent volunteer operated and able to run as a privately funded program for almost 50 years.
Budget  3,768930
Category  Human Services, General/Other Human Services, General/Other
Population Served General/Unspecified Homeless At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  Our short term successes can be seen daily in our clients’ ability to access services immediately. They can walk into our facility and the same day receive a bag of groceries, or meet with one of our staff members or volunteers and get emergency financial assistance to help pay their rent or a utility bill when funds are available.
SOS provides 200-300 bags of groceries a day, five days a week to low-income Orange County residents lacking food security. Increasing food security in the home increases family health and stability.
Our seasonal programs also offer immediate relief to our clients, whether they are taking part in our annual Back to School backpack distribution in August, our Thanksgiving Food Distribution, or our Adopt A Family Program, which links donors and families in need of extra support during the holiday season.
Program Long-Term Success  Our comprehensive social services will provide the at-risk populations in Orange County the safety net services they need in order to promote a healthy, stable community. Whether they need help from our food pantry to supplement their groceries, emergency financial assistance so that they can pay their rent, or a meeting to learn how to manage their finances better, SOS will provide the low-income and homeless families and individuals in our community personalized care and quality services.
Program Success Monitored By  During each Social Services visit, counselor notes are entered in a database and there is an in-person interview to assess the client’s situation and provide appropriate resources and referrals.
Examples of Program Success  We have countless stories from clients about how our social services have helped them through difficulties. Here is just one example:
Norma is a single mother with a 4-year-old son, Jacob. She works at a local hospital as a sterilization tech. For a year, Norma rented a back bedroom at someone’s home, but this living situation was not ideal.
Norma realized that she needed to move out and began saving for the moving expenses.  Living paycheck to paycheck did not make saving easy. Norma found an apartment close to work, but the rent deposit, utility deposit, and her usual monthly expenses were too much.  Norma went to other organizations seeking assistance, but they were unable to help and referred her to SOS. Norma came to SOS and met with staff, one of our financial counselors. After assessing the situation, our staff was able to approve Norma for assistance to move into her own apartment.
Norma is now able to provide Jacob with a safe place to live and play thanks to the help of SOS.

SOS Behavioral Health

 Both adult and pediatric behavioral health services; including linkage to substance abuse treatment is provided at all SOS clinic sites. This program provided 4,500 provider encounters in FY 2016-2017.

As a health care provider she saw the relationship between the lack of knowledge in oral care and chronic diseases such as diabetes or habits such as smoking. Poor oral care is an epidemic that can be prevented with proper education, especially in underprivileged population.
