We invite you to Join our National Health Center Immigration Workgroup (NHCIW) to receive updates on policy changes impacting immigrant communities and share resources with out of state PCAs and Health Centers.
For decades, community health centers (CHCs) have been the safety net providers for underserved and low income communities, while also serving as active advocates for their patients’ healthcare rights. This is especially true now that our immigrant patients and communities are facing extreme fears of deportation under the new administration. In response, health centers have been looking for resources and technical assistance to help them create a safer environment for their immigrant patients and staff.
You may access resources and technical assistance, including sample policies and procedures, FAQs, and recorded webinars by visiting the sections below.
For questions, please contact Liz Oseguera, Associate Director of Policy, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 440-8170.
