We are doing whatever it takes
With a vision for a restored and healthier Los Angeles, LACHC recently relocated its Joshua House clinic facility to a 25,000 square foot building in June 2021. This state-of-the-art health center has created a comprehensive and quality healthcare experience for patients and has increased patient capacity with the creation of 18 medical exam rooms, six flexible consultation rooms, eight dental chairs, nine mental health rooms, group therapy meeting rooms, 13 social work/care coordination offices, an optometry suite, a multi-purpose area, a meditation room, and a chaplain’s office. Co-located with 54 permanent supportive housing units, Joshua House serves a flagship for LACHC and is staffed full-time to meet the needs of uninsured, homeless, and shelter populations in Downtown Los Angeles.As times change and community needs evolve, LACHC remains committed to evolving alongside the community served by changing processes and adjusting strategies to best fit patient need. Continuing their commitment and a heart to serve the community, LACHC is aware of the need to evolve within their own organization by focusing on internal sustainability to best position LACHC for years to come. Since 1995, nonprofit and Federally Qualified Health Center, Los Angeles Christian Health Centers (LACHC), has been at the forefront of addressing the critical health needs of the most vulnerable populations of Los Angeles. From offering HIV- AIDS care services during the early 90’s to now addressing the surge and aftermath of the COVID pandemic, LACHC has served homeless and underserved communities with quality healthcare that makes a long-term impact. Each year thirty full time medical, dental, and mental health providers serve approximately 13,000 patients in Downtown Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, and Watts. With decisions guided by a strong Christian faith, LACHC is committed to caring for patients as a whole person, not just a diagnosis or set of vital signs. Journeying alongside patients to find hope and healing for the mind, body and spirit, creates a healthier person and in turn a stronger community.
