We joined the Women’s Health movement 44 years ago, understanding that health is influenced by physical, social, emotional, and political factors. Along the way we joined the national Community Health Center movement, dramatically expanding access to care for all people.
We provide comprehensive, high-quality primary care to anyone who walks through our doors, regardless of ability to pay or any other circumstance.
Next year will be another big year: we’re planning to expand creating a new 18,000 square foot clinic in the heart of Live Oak, along with a new 10,000 square foot Dientes dental clinic and 57 units of affordable housing thanks to MidPen. This essential health and housing hub is the first of its kind in Santa Cruz County! We’ll keep you posted.
Our Annual Report shows the strides we’ve made this year thanks to your support. And with your generosity, we’ll keep striving. Thank you for joining us on the front lines of Community Health where we deliver the best of what science and human compassion dictate.
Wishing you a new year of health and happiness.
