Welcome to the Health Center Advocacy Network – a robust network of over 100,000 Community Health Center Advocates across the nation. The primary purpose of the Health Center Advocacy Network is to support and advance leaders throughout the Community Health Center Movement by equipping people with the power (story and strategy) to create change.
HCAdvocacy.org provides access to programs and tools to build relationships with health center advocates, staff, board members, elected officials, and other stakeholders. Our goal is to build a multi-generational group of leaders committed to ensuring access to affordable, equitable care in medically underserved communities. These leaders are focused on what health centers need to survive and thrive.
Community Health Centers are health care homes that make up the backbone of our nation’s primary care system. Community, Migrant, Homeless, and Public Housing Health Centers, also known as Federally-Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), a provide comprehensive care to over 30 million patients at 14,500 service delivery sites in every state and territory. Health centers save the health care system $24 billion annually in reduced emergency, hospital, and specialty care costs.
