Since inception, the Clinic has provided clinical and outreach services to more than 35,000 women.
In the last year
The Clinic provided 5,936 clinical visits for 2,702 low-income Bay Area women and girls.
Outreach staff and volunteers engaged in 4,658 encounters with homeless and marginally housed clients. They distributed 540 kits with supplies for safer sex and drug use, served 4,600 meals, and provided over 1,250 pairs of socks and coats.
100+ volunteer Health Workers donated 11,857 hours of their time to provide Clinical services to our clients, at an in-kind value of $228,923.
And, 96% of departing Clinic volunteers entered programs to continue their educations in the health professions.
Our WAHT (Western Addition Health Training) program combines health workforce training with community outreach among the Black community in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood. From community-based workshops to internships at Women’s Community Clinic, WAHT delivers direct health services in conjunction with education, mentorship, and leadership training.
As part of our work in and with the Western Addition community, Women’s Community Clinic proudly participates in a variety of local events. Since 2012, we’ve participated in Generations: Black LGBTIQQ Experiences, an annual event that celebrates the lives of Black LGBTIQQ people with an art gallery, live music, food, readings, and free HIV/STI testing. Every year, our staff and volunteers provide health education information and free HIV tests at this festive community celebration. The Clinic is also proud to be part of the yearly Mo’ Magic Health Fair, a back-to-school event that highlights the work of local community organizations — and provides every child over 5 with a brand-new backpack full of school supplies!
