“NAF is proud to support People’s Center as it provides affordable, high-quality healthcare in the Cedar-Riverside community.”

Allison Wagstrom, Portfolio Manager, Nonprofits Assistance Fund

People’s Center Health Services (PCHS) is a safety net clinic, offering a full range of preventative care, primary care, behavioral and oral health services.  Its mission is to provide affordable health care, inspire hope, and promote community wellness. In addition to health care services, PCHS addresses broader needs through social service referrals, immigration assistance, and mental health counseling.  

PCHS has been providing culturally competent health care services in the Cedar-Riverside community for more than 45 years. PCHS’s team of staff and care coordinators reflects the patients served with more than 60% of the staff being people of color and 40% being bilingual. Children make up 20% of patient visits, and that number is increasing each year.

Nonprofits Assistance Fund has provided a variety of loans over the years, including lines of credit and a loan to renovate the facility. NAF currently is proud to provide a loan to renovate the lobby and purchase new furniture, which will improve the flow of intake and upgrade the client experience.
