Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Driven by the passionate belief that health care is a human right, La Clínica del Pueblo is a community-based health center committed to delivering the highest-quality, culturally appropriate, patient-centered health services. One of our main goals is to enhance our capacity to deliver quality health care, support services, and health educational services to members of its target population: 11,000 low-income, uninsured or under insured men, women, children and adolescents in the Latino community who reside in the Washington, DC Metro Area.

Our health care approach in practice: La Clínica is a community-based organization at its core. Our programs and services are inspired by the community we serve and developed in response to the community's needs. La Clínica's bilingual and culturally competent staff and volunteers deliver high-quality services not only in the language most accessible to our patients but draw from their own cultural backgrounds to engage patients through the following care, health education, prevention and language access programs.

La Clínica's approach to providing, primary care, behavioral health and health education in a co-located setting has been extremely effective in serving the DC Area Latino community. Offering patients multiple types of health services within an institution they know, and with providers they trust, often leaves patients more receptive to services for which stigma can present an additional barrier to care. For instance, La Clínica's primary care program includes a mental health therapist embedded in the primary care team allowing for easy linkage to mental health care services during the primary care visit. In providing seamless access to behavioral health services we are not only easing access to care but reducing the cultural stigma against accessing mental health services that exist for patients.

or the last 29 years, we have increased access to linguistically and culturally appropriate health care services for low-income, uninsured or under insured Latinos in the DC area.

Providing over 35,000 services to over 8,000 individuals every year, we are committed to strengthen and improve the quality of existing services.

Likewise, with the help of our loyal supporters we have been able to expand access to quality services; increase patient participation in all aspects of clinic operations, services, and advocacy; and reached moderate growth in the size of the patient population and the types of services offered.

The recent economic crisis has affected our patients, our donors and La Clínica. However, we continue to strengthen financial stability through development of new revenue streams (e.g., private insurance, individual/major donor, fee for service). Our number one priority is to provide high-quality services with dignity and respect to those most in need and we can only achieve this with a strong support network of revenue stream that allows us to continue opening our doors.
