Mission Statement

To maximize children's abilities by providing access to rehabilitative and enrichment services.

Description

Tichenor Clinic for Children is an established leader in providing rehabilitative services for children (0 - 18 years old). Founded in 1926 by Adelaide Tichenor, the Clinic is one of the oldest nonprofit community clinics in Long Beach. Adelaide learned that the best time to correct orthopedic problems is during childhood. Had she received treatment as a child for a clubfoot deformity, she would not have had foot problems throughout her life. Her lifelong dream to help children with chronic orthopedic disabilities, regardless of their ability to pay, was realized with the opening of the Clinic in 1926. Fulfilling Adelaide's vision, Tichenor Clinic is dedicated to maximizing children's abilities by providing access to rehabilitative and enrichment services.

Annually, Tichenor Clinic provides services to approximately 786 children and their families from Long Beach and the surrounding area with 14,147 visits. The children are underinsured (have Medi-Cal or a high deductible), cannot find a provider, or do not have access to services.
