Mission

Our mission is to eliminate health disparities and foster community well-being by providing and promoting the highest quality care in South Los Angeles.

Vision

St. John’s Well Child and Family Center will be a leader, catalyst, and model for the best care; long-term community health improvements; and sustainable, health-enhancing systems and structures in Los Angeles.

Background

St. John’s Well Child and Family Center (SJWCFC) is an independent 501(c)(3) community health center. We serve patients of all ages through a network of six Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), a Family Chronic Disease and Environmental Health Center, and four school-based clinics spanning the breadth of Central and South Los Angeles and Compton. Our mission is to eliminate health disparities and foster community well-being by providing and promoting the highest quality care in South Los Angeles. The central goal of SJWCFC is to address the unmet needs of low-income, uninsured, and underinsured residents of the service area by providing access to linguistically and culturally appropriate primary medical, dental, and mental health services, regardless of ability to pay.

Our work, however, goes far beyond the traditional health care model to embrace the broader concept of well-being. In addition to providing a broad array of primary care services, we place a high priority on developing supportive services to address families’ educational, socio-economic, and mental health needs. This is accomplished through outreach, health education, child development and literacy education, case management, insurance enrollment, and mental health assessments. We have and continue to establish strong partnerships with health, educational, social service, and development agencies to deliver a wide range of services that are responsive to community needs.
