Compassion. Unity. Resilience.
South Central Los Angeles is all that and more. With 644,612 residents in South Central Family Health Center’s service area, South Central shouldn’t be judged by its stereotypes, but known for its commitment to building relationships and creating change. For 36 years, SCFHC has built on those strengths by hiring from the community.
Our staff is united by the support they give one another and the care they provide to our patients. We work with the community to overcome challenges and together we succeed. We are determined to heal, educate, and empower. Please join us in this year’s End of Year Campaign to learn about the staff that make SCFHC truly a community clinic.
