Mission Statement

Our mission is to build better futures through the delivery of health care, education and social services. We embrace culturally diverse communities to provide them with the highest quality of care, regardless of their ability to pay.


In 1988, President/CEO Maria S. Gomez founded Mary's Center as a community-based nonprofit focused on maternal and child care for immigrant women from Central America in the predominantly Latino areas of Ward One. Today, Mary's Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides primary care and enabling services to underserved, underinsured and uninsured immigrants primarily from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. We have four locations in Washington, D.C. and two in Maryland, as well as two mobile health units that provide services for those that cannot come to us.

Mary's Center serves low-income, immigrant families whose linguistic and cultural needs would otherwise go unmet by public or private health care systems. We link families to community services, informing them about the educational, housing, and employment resources available to them. All our social and educational services are provided at no cost, and no one is turned away from our medical services for lack of payment.
