What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Established 30 years ago by immigrant and nurse Maria Gomez, Mary’s Center recognizes that health disparities are intertwined with low socio-economic mobility. It is difficult to advance up the economic ladder when one is hungry, homeless, poorly educated and suffering from debilitating health problems. Our participants live in communities plagued by poverty, gang recruitment and opioid addiction. To address obstacles to economic opportunity, families need wraparound supports. We do this by: 1) Providing high-quality, culturally appropriate health services for all, particularly for immigrants that remain uninsured under existing federal systems and pregnant black women whose potentially fatal symptoms are often ignored. 2) Providing opportunities for immigrant adolescents through after-school programming to put them on-track towards college. 3) Providing workforce training in computers, childcare, and medical assistant careers that will lead to higher paying jobs.

Charting impact

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

Mary’s Center is more than just a health center; we are an anchor in the community that partners with residents to help determine how we can best help them build a solid base for improving their health, education, and economic situation. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate health and social inequities in the communities we serve. We partner with the private and public sector to advance sensible and sustainable health and social policies that address inequities in the communities we serve.

Because Mary's Center offers healthcare, education, and social services, the organization has established goals for each division. The goals for Mary's Center healthcare services are to: provide access to preventative primary care services, help participants with chronic diseases manage their illnesses to improve quality of life, provide under-resourced populations access to comprehensive dental care, and deliver comprehensive behavioral health care to help families and individuals achieve the highest quality of life. Mary's Center has set the following goals for the education programs we offer: prepare young children to succeed in the school system, graduate high school and pursue higher education and/or employment opportunities and enhance parents' ability to acquire and hold employment to achieve financial stability for their families. Finally, the goals for Mary's Center's social services are the following: screen individuals for risks and connect to support programs, provide parents with the tools to better support their children from infancy onward, equip teens with the skills and supports they need to excel academically, lead healthy lifestyle and navigate the transition between high school and college, and meet the needs of DC's aging population through services offered at two Senior Wellness Centers.

Our Social Change Model delivers health, education, workforce development and social services through an integrated approach involving multiple generations, services and partners. This model is based on the principle that treating individuals for health problems alone is insufficient to overcome multiple life challenges faced by an under-resourced population, or to offer the human capital needed to succeed economically. We assess the stressors in our participants’ lives and partner with them to deliver comprehensive services throughout the life cycle, integrating a spectrum of social and behavioral health services (including geriatric care, nutrition counseling, and dental care), workforce development and education programs, delivered directly by Mary’s Center or with our educational partner Briya Public Charter School. Our suite of services ultimately improves the financial lives of our participants, provides an on-ramp for economic mobility and helps break the cycle of poverty. Mary's Center offers our comprehensive services under one roof at our locations throughout District of Columbia and Maryland in order to ensure they are accessible to our participants.

Mary’s Center integrates a myriad of programs and services for our participants, which includes the following:

Health Care: Adult Medicine; Chronic Disease Control; Family Planning and Prenatal Care; HIV Prevention and Treatment; Pediatrics; Health Promotion; Nutrition; Oral Health; Substance Abuse Treatment; Mental Health onsite and within 18 public schools in DC

Social Services: Public Benefits and Health Insurance Program Enrollment Assistance; Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) Assistance; Family Support; Home Visiting; Teen After-School and Summer Programming; Father-Child Attachment Program; Early Intervention for special needs children

Workforce Development: Medical Assistant Training; Development Associates Training; Child Care Licensing; Teen Internship Program

Family Literacy: Multi-generational Family Literacy where parents and children learn together, preparing the toddler to enter school and helping the parents move up the economic ladder.

We received the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) 2017 and 2018 Health Center Quality Leader Award for having the best clinical performance outcomes among 1,400 federally qualified health centers. Over the years Mary’s Center has performed in the top quartile for childhood immunizations, depression and cervical cancer screenings. 100% of our Teen Program members graduated from high school and attended college and our education partner, Briya is a Tier-1 school.

In 2018, Mary’s Center’s Social Change Model was evaluated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Urban Institute. Preliminary results from the quantitative evaluation reveal that participants with increased risk of hypertension, obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol who use multiple services provided by Mary’s Center are more likely to achieve better health outcomes. That is, the Social Change Model we use is protective against cardiovascular risk among adult participants. Final findings from the qualitative evaluation reveal that Mary’s Center’s social change model—the intersection of comprehensive medical care, dual generation education, and social services—yields results. We can see that change, over time, in the well-being of those served by the center.

Mary's Center serves over 54,000 individuals annually. In 2019, Mary's Center provided over $9.5 million in free care.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
