Abstract/Notes As chiropractic is focused on correcting a major interference to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual connection within human beings, would there be benefits in providing chiropractic care to homeless, hungry, and isolated people? Is Humanity ready for chiropractic?

Observations about the effects of providing chiropractic care to a large group of people, not in an office setting, but in soup kitchens and HIV residences where they would otherwise not have the opportunity to receive this service, have not been formally studied.

This article serves to offer a description of chiropractic care as part of consistent, long-term humanitarian efforts within a disadvantaged population.

The organization described, Chiropractic for Humanity (C4H), currently provides onsite care at three programs in New York City: two soup kitchens and one HIV resident center. Approximately $800,000 in chiropractic services are donated annually, and up to 500 adjustments provided per week.

The combination of chiropractic services with these existing humanitarian programs offers a model of successful collaboration. Chiropractic for Humanity proposes developing additional partnerships to provide services to the disadvantaged in locations throughout the country.
