Jon DeCarmine

Board Member

Jon DeCarmine serves as the Executive Director of GRACE, a one-stop assistance center and low-barrier emergency shelter in Gainesville, FL. He oversees emergency and permanent housing programs, strategic planning, and visioning. His work is guided by two core principles – that everyone deserves a safe place to call home, and that the idea of human beings sleeping on our streets is not “normal,” but rather an unacceptable indication of policy failures and broken systems.

Global Health Partners

Grace Healthcare Services Corp supports a multi-disciplinary medical team that is partnering with the Haitian non-profit Caribbean Harvest Foundation, the University of Florida (UF), and the Universite d'Etat d’Haiti (UEH) in efforts to improve health and access to medical care in several remote fishing villages around Lac Azuei and Lac de Pelegre in Haiti.

Caribbean Harvest has been working in Haiti for over 15 years to develop sustainable fish farming. In addition, Caribbean Harvest has coordinated efforts to provide housing, education, clean water and medical care in many of the fish farming villages. In support of that effort, Grace Healthcare Services Corp teams have traveled to Haiti on a regular basis since 2013. The teams set up and run medical clinics, perform health and nutrition assessments, and provide medications, health education, family planning services, and follow-up care for chronic disease management.

Grace Healthcare Services Corp has also worked to establish a cooperative agreement between the University of Florida College of Medicine and the Universite d'Etat d’Haiti Faculte' de Medecine et de Pharmacie to provide for medical student exchange and international medical education. We continue to support UF medical and pharmacy students on annual global health trips to Haiti, working and learning side-by-side with UEH medical and pharmacy students. We also support UEH senior medical students coming the the University of Florida for clinical rotations in Emergency Medicine.

Grace Healthcare Services Corp constructed a medical clinic at GRACE Marketplace in 2016 to provide healthcare to the homeless and other medically indigent individuals in the Gainesville area. The physical space is provided rent-free by the City of Gainesville and Alachua County.

Grace Healthcare Services Corp has partnered with the University of Florida Mobile Outreach Clinic, Helping Hands Clinic, and Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corp to provide ongoing support, equipment and supplies necessary to operate the clinic. The clinic space and supplies are used by the various partner organizations for regularly scheduled medical clinics on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The clinics provide acute care and chronic disease management for hundreds of individuals who otherwise would have no access to care. Your donations will allow us to continue, and hopefully expand, the health care services provided for the poor and needy.

Homeless Outreach and Street Medicine Program

Most homeless people in Gainesville live on the margins of the city, away from medical services and lacking reliable transportation and many times the necessary insurance coverage to access these vital services. For this reason, Grace Healthcare Services in partnership with The University of Florida College of Medicine, the Alachua County Department of Social Services, and Meridian Behavioral Health, has created the new Homeless Outreach and Street Medicine Program (HOSMP). Teams of medical students, health professionals, and behavioral specialists are bringing their services to the streets.

In addition to a combination of acute medical care and prescription refills, the HOSMP team will also provide connections to housing programs and other social services needed by people living in homelessness, as well as supply basic necessities like food, clothing, and hygiene products. By taking compassionate care of the most vulnerable among us, HOSMP is helping heal bodies and minds to create better futures.

No community can be truly prosperous when so many don't have access to the basic physical and mental healthcare that will help them transition from a place of desperation to begin their journey of self sufficiency. The less access the homeless population has to acute care services, the more dire their situations will become, leading to extensive emergency room visits.

The Homeless Outreach and Street Medicine Program can mitigate the need for emergency room services by addressing health needs before they escalate.

Your gift makes it possible for this team of partners to bring acute medical care, pharmaceutical services, and links to social service programs to the people who need it most... the unsheltered, homeless population of Alachua County.

logo Grace Women's Clinic logo

In September of 2021, the Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corp began operating a women’s health clinic at GRACE Marketplace on the second and forth Monday every month, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Grace Women’s Health Clinic provides physical and mental health services for the underserved women experiencing homelessness who are living at GRACE Marketplace, unsheltered homeless women, the working poor, uninsured and other needy women in the Alachua County area. Grace Healthcare Services Corp built and maintains the facility, provides the equipment and supplies needed to run the clinics.

Approximately one third of GRACE Marketplace’s 120 residents are female. The Center on Violence Against Women, US Council of Mayors, Urban League, & National Coalition for the Homeless have each found homeless women `particularly vulnerable to sexual violence at rates as high as 92%'. Pregnant homeless women (sometimes at GRACE) experience very adverse birth outcomes.

We support the Women’s Clinic with a safe and comfortable setting, with our staffing partners the Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corps, Alachua County Department of Health, and the Alachua County Rape Crisis Center, providing the care. The Women’s Clinic provides general medical, gynecological, limited/initial pre-natal care with referral, and sexual assault evaluation with onsite counseling by Alachua County Rape Crisis Center staff.
