care will always be grounded in social justice.
Our Core Values
Our core values guide how we fulfill our mission, including our decision making, community collaborators and program delivery.
Our comprehensive, integrated approach to community and individual health puts our clients at the center of our work. Our wide array of medical, mental health, education, and community services are designed to empower people in safe, respectful, and supportive spaces. Individual and community transformations inform our training, consultation, and policy advocacy work.
A Commitment To Affirm Gender
San Francisco Community Health Center is committed to celebrating and honoring the diversity of our employees and clients. Part of this commitment includes proactively learning about and adopting practices that create an environment where all employees and clients are able to thrive. We include gender pronouns in our agency’s email signatures as a small, but important step to signify respect for all gender identities. As language is a powerful tool, using the correct pronouns for an individual makes one feel valued, included, safe and respected. Gender expression, identity and names do not dictate one’s pronouns. By adding our pronouns to our email signatures, we are stating that we are a gender affirming organization that encourages everyone to be their authentic selves.
