San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC) develops innovative programs and advocates for policies to increase access to quality community-based primary health care. We work to ensure that people of all income levels have access to health care that is:
Comprehensive, coordinated, and efficient
Culturally and linguistically appropriate
Focused on patient needs
Providing primary care services to more than 10% of San Francisco’s population, we work with providers citywide to coordinate primary care with specialists, hospitals, and other services. We serve overlooked populations such as low-income, homeless, immigrant, racially/ethnically diverse, LGBTQ, HIV-positive, and senior San Franciscans.
Demonstrating our Value
Through our award-winning Street Outreach Services (SOS) and Veterinary Street Outreach Services (Vet SOS), SFCCC works in partnership with its member clinics and the San Francisco Department of Public Health to provide quality, on-the-spot healthcare to the homeless population.
Street Outreach Services (SOS)
Street Outreach Services (SOS) is the mobile outreach component of SFCCC’s Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) program. Since 1988, SOS has provided high-quality, nonjudgmental health services directly to homeless people in places where they live and congregate.
Veterinary Street Outreach Services (VetSOS)
Veterinary SOS provides free veterinary care to the companion animals of homeless San Franciscans, and links their human guardians with health care services. Operating since 2001, VetSOS is a project of SFCCC's street outreach services program.
Health Care for the Homeless (HCH)*
A partnership between SFCCC, five of our member organizations, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH), the San Francisco Health Care for the Homeless program has operated since 1988. SFCCC administers a federal HCH grant and contracts with these partners for the provision of HCH services, including medical, nursing, dental, substance abuse, mental health, case management, and outreach services. The program serves more than 15,000 homeless San Franciscans annually.
*SFCCC's HCH Program is funded with $7 Million in federal funds (27%) , $5.5 Million in Program Income (21%) and
$13.6 Million in non-federal income (52%), totaling $26 Million Dollars.
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program
For nearly three decades, SFCCC has served as a federal Ryan White CARE Act Part C grantee. The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides a comprehensive system of care for approximately 52% of all people living with HIV in the United States, including primary medical care and essential support services.
Our member Clinics
San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium's 11 member clinics serve over 112,000 low-income, uninsured, and medically underserved people per year. The clinics are located strategically throughout San Francisco to meet the health needs of the people and communities they serve. Comprehensive primary, preventive, and ambulatory care services are provided by a team of doctors, mid-level clinicians, nurses, dentists, and health practitioners under the supervision of a medical director. Many clinics offer "one stop shopping" including mental health services, dental and vision care, health promotion and disease prevention education. Services are also available in up to 20 languages. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay. Services are offered on a sliding scale, based on income and may be free depending upon an individual’s circumstances and programs offered.
