It is the mission of La Maestra Community Health Centers’ Board and Staff to provide quality health care and education; to improve the overall well being of the family; bringing the under-served, ethnically diverse communities into the mainstream of our society, through a caring, effective, culturally and linguistically competent manner, respecting the dignity of all patients.

As the name illustrates, La Maestra (“The Teacher”) believes that the basis for any social change and effective healthcare outcome is education. To date, La Maestra Community Health Centers has been the medical home and a resource center to over 65,000 low-income community residents. The multicultural, multilingual requirements of the diverse target population complicate access to coordination of necessary services. La Maestra Community Health Centers has recognized these demonstrated needs and responded by developing creative solutions and collaborative efforts through services and programs since its inception.
