Health Worker Program: Since 1999, the Women’s Community Clinic has used an innovative volunteer-based business model to provide affordable health care services to Bay Area women and girls. In addition to providing high quality, client-centered care, our volunteer Health Workers gain hands-on health care experience, receive comprehensive training, and learn from passionate and progressive health experts.
Western Addition Health Training Program: The Western Addition Health Training (WAHT) Program is an innovative health careers training and community outreach program, with a focus on African American women from the Western Addition community in San Francisco. WAHT integrates the strengths of the Women’s Community Clinic and adjoining communities to both train emerging health leaders and contribute to the elimination of health disparities for African-American women and girls in San Francisco.
Outreach Program: The Women’s Community Clinic Outreach Program builds relationships with and supports women who are living and working on the streets in order to improve their health and well-being. The program engages in participant-centered and harm reduction-based prevention work by conducting outreach visits twice a week by our “Condom Ladies” outreach volunteers, facilitating health education workshops, and coordinating a weekly drop-in program, called Ladies’ Night, in collaboration with other community-based social service organizations.
Advocacy: In order to truly improve the health and well-being of women and girls, the Women’s Community Clinic advocates for our clients while empowering them to be health care advocates for themselves. The Women’s Community Clinic has engaged in a variety of policy and advocacy efforts toward the expansion of access to health coverage and ensuring that the needs of women and girls are addressed in any legislative reform that involves increasing or enhancing access to health care.
