San Francisco Community Health Center (formerly known as API Wellness) is a federally qualified health center that provides culturally competent, high quality medical care, health services, education, and outreach. We transform lives by advancing health, wellness and equality. We strengthen the well-being of and lead under-served communities—of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, and immigration statuses—toward justice and health. Founded in 1987 as an all-volunteer, community-based response to the AIDS crisis in communities of color, we are an anchor-organization for San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, and we also lead regional, statewide, and national programming.
We believe that everyone deserves to be healthy and needs access to the highest quality health care.
