In 1982, a group of community-based, non-profit health clinics – recognizing their shared values and concerns – came together to form the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC).  The creation of SFCCC allowed these clinics to pool their collective resources to address their needs and interests, and those of their patients, to local, state and national policy makers.

SFCCC works to lead and support the partnership in four core areas, each with distinct programs: access to care, workforce development, maximization of valuable resources and health policy.  While SFCCC partner health clinics focus on patient care and preserving the well-being of the communities they serve, SFCCC promotes the health of our clinics - keeping them poised to adapt to a changing healthcare environment - so that their long-standing tradition of community care is preserved.
