Mission Statement

In the Washington metropolitan area, there are men, women and children who suffer and even die prematurely because they do not receive adequate health care. Although there may be many reasons why people do not obtain timely and adequate health care, a very prominent reason is lack of both health insurance and funds to pay for care. Inability to pay for needed health care compounds the suffering and vulnerability of poor and homeless persons. Care for persons most vulnerable and in special need has been central to the Judeo-Christian tradition and to the mission of the Church. In keeping with this tradition and mission, the Archdiocesan Health Care Network was founded in 1984 to provide caring and competent health care services for poor and homeless persons. These services are provided by volunteers in all health professions who serve as the instruments of the love and peace of Christ to their less fortunate brothers and sisters.

Description

Since 1984, we have provided specialty health care to uninsured, low-income members of our community. We provide over 3,000 patient appointments annually with the value of $4 million in care.
