PARTNERS

Alameda Health Consortium
The Alameda Health Consortium is an association of community health centers based in Alameda County, California, that works together and supports the involvement of our communities in achieving comprehensive, accessible health care and improved outcomes for everyone in the County. All people have the right to accessible and affordable high quality health care that prevents illness, promotes wellness, and is sensitive to the unique needs of particular communities and cultures.
Community Health Center Network
The Community Health Center Network (CHCN) was formed in 1996 by seven community health centers based in Alameda County, California. The Network is a partnership of community health centers committed to enhancing our ability to provide comprehensive, quality health care in a manner respectful of community traditions and values.
Sinkler Miller Medical Association
Sinkler Miller Medical Association was formed to improve the health care of African American and other minority people in the bay area, as well as retain African American physicians within the area. The members of Sinkler Miller Medical Association continue to come together to advocate for health care promotion, scholarships for African American students, physician education, mentorship of students and new physicians, public health programs, and recruitment and retention of all African American providers of health care.
West Oakland Health Center
The West Oakland Health Council is a non-profit organization providing primary care, mental health, and substance abuse recovery services to residents of North, East and West Oakland, Emeryville and Southwest Berkeley. Its mission is to improve the health and well-being of residents and to reduce morbidity, preventable disability and premature death in the community.
Asian Health Services
Asian Health Services emerged out of a community and student-driven effort of the East Bay Asians for Community Action in 1973. Its success is not measured solely by how many patients served, but by how the community understands and asserts its rights to health care.
La Clinica de la Raza
Before La ClĂ­nica de La Raza was established, low-income residents in the East Bay had few options available to them for affordable health care. As a result, many were forced to go to the Emergency Room for problems that could have been avoided with adequate care. In response to this gap in services, a group of concerned health practitioners, community activists and students came together in 1971 to establish a multi-service clinic based on the needs expressed by the community.
Healthy Communities
Our mission is to decrease violence and health disparities in primarily the African American community, but also in other ethnic communities as well. We shall accomplish this by collaborating with other community conscious organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals.
Native American Health Center
Native American Health Center provides a full range of community health care and prevention services including primary medical care, comprehensive dental care, women's health, health
education, youth services, nutrition counseling, health care for homeless, HIV/AIDS prevention and care, outreach, prenatal and perinatal care, and outpatient mental health and substance abuse counseling. Native American Health Center also maintains a satellite clinic at Alameda Point, a school-based clinic in Alameda and the Healthy Nations Wellness Center, the only family fitness center in the Fruitvale neighborhood in Oakland.
