Global Grace Health
Be the Change NJ

Global Grace Health Be the Change NJ is a mobile COVID vaccine and testing program that focuses on serving low-income and underserved  populations including recently arrived refugees, asylum seekers, unaccompanied minors, human trafficking survivors, undocumented persons, homeless veterans, the uninsured, and individuals returning from prison. Mobile pop-up clinics visit farmers markets, street fairs, factories, businesses, faith communities – anywhere there is a gathering place where people can receive COVID information, testing, and vaccines. The mobile clinic is free and open to the public without appointment.

Our program goals include:

  1. Increasing participation in Covid-19 testing and vaccination for vulnerable populations
  2. Administering vaccinations to vulnerable populations
  3. Contact tracing
  4. Advocating and educating about Covid-19, vaccines and testing
  5. Increasing access and decreasing disparities for COVID 19 infections
  6. Providing food and other support for families and individuals with COVID infections and those who may be food insecure
  7. Additionally, we provide flu shots (seasonal), pregnancy tests, and screenings for TB, hypertension, diabetes and cancer
  8. Visits to migrant farm camps and homeless encampments
