More than Three Decades of Service to Our Community
San Francisco Community Health Center has had a long journey since its founding in 1987. We grew out of the response to the 1980s AIDS crisis, specifically supporting the impact of the epidemic on the Asian and Pacific Islander community. In 1996 we launched as Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center and since then we have worked hard to remain rooted in API communities while welcoming anyone who needs our services. In 2015 we became recognized as a federally qualified health center (FQHC) which allowed us to increase our clinical capacity and serve more of our community. We became San Francisco Community Health Center in 2018 to fully encompass all of programs and services we offer and reflect the diverse community that we serve.
