La Clínica del Pueblo

Overview

La Clínica del Pueblo is a bilingual, bicultural, community health center that provides comprehensive care to the Latino community. La Clínica’s holistic services combine primary care, mental health and substance abuse services, HIV/AIDS prevention, social services, interpreter services, and community health outreach. More than 50% of La Clínica’s patients have less than a seventh grade education, and 90% of their clients are uninsured and under the federal poverty level.

Mission

To provide culturally appropriate health services to persons in the Latino community, regardless of their ability to pay.

Vision for the Future

La Clínica del Pueblo promotes community participation and empowerment through professional care, advocacy, and a vision of health care as a human right. Their patients take an active role in their health care and form an essential part of their team. Clients are pleased with the services they receive. They give priority to patients with the greatest health need, who cannot pay for services otherwise. They have a clean, safe, comfortable, and colorful facility, in which sufficient staff has the appropriate tools to accomplish their tasks. Their efficient processes allow them to provide the greatest number of patients with quality services.

La Clínica is a sensitive, multicultural, and bilingual organization that continually grows to meet the needs of the Latino community throughout the region. They emphasize prevention, education, and wellness as essential parts of our comprehensive concept of health care.
