As a federally qualified health center we strive to eliminate or minimize any barriers to accessing care and improved wellness. We believe in our mission to acknowledge the dignity of each individual, the strength of family, and the supportive network of our community. We work to build trusting relationships, bridge gaps in care, and improve quality of life.”
