Health centers provide access to basic health care services in the communities that need them most.

Their doors are open to everyone – families and children, farmworkers and the homeless, and those who are uninsured, on Medicaid, or have private insurance.

Why Advocacy?

Advocacy is critical to ensure the continued funding and public support for community health centers.
