Mobile Clinic Project at UCLA

The Mobile Clinic Project (MCP) at UCLA is a student-run program that provides healthcare and social services to the homeless and medically indigent by way of an equipped van. MCP’s mission is to improve health outcomes and quality of life by providing direct medical services, health-promotion and disease-prevention activities, social support and case management and referrals.

In fall 2013, the MCP received an influx of support from a new generation of philanthropists. Jonathan and Robert Lee, creators of The Foundation Boys, secured gifts totaling $50,000 from donors and a local foundation.

Established in 2007, The Foundation Boys is dedicated to matching public-service projects with prospective funders and teaching the next generation about the impact of giving. “We have been fortunate to see the MCP in action and the magnificent caring and respectful service provided,” Jonathan Lee says. “Basic healthcare is a right for every human being,” Robert Lee adds. “As young people, we want to spotlight the greatness achieved by UCLA and its students.”

Students have provided care for thousands of low-income and homeless individuals through MCP.
