Mission/Goal/history :

In the late 1960’s federal funding became available to provide primary care services in medically underserved areas throughout the United States.

West Oakland, a low income and largely African American community, lacked affordable, accessible, culturally responsive and high quality health care services. Many residents were unable to afford care from nearby private medical practices and were forced to seek care at the county hospital, often requiring long waiting times for appointments and difficulty accessing services by public transit.

Community activists, organized and supported by four dedicated West Oakland African American women, established the West Oakland Health Council in 1967 to receive public funding, and to build and staff the West Oakland Health Center.

Funding was received and services were initiated in 1969 at 700 Adeline Street. In subsequent years, as additional funding became available, the Council expanded to seven facilities serving West/North Oakland, East Oakland, Emeryville and Berkeley.

The West Oakland Health Council is a non-profit Community Health Center providing primary care, mental health, and substance abuse recovery services to residents of West, North and East Oakland, Emeryville and Southwest Berkeley. Its mission is to improve the health and well-being of residents of these communities and to reduce morbidity, preventable disability and premature death.
