Children’s Community Clinic began in 2005. Our Clinic has continuously served the children of our community, paying particular attention to those who may be socially disadvantaged. Formerly known as the North Portland Nurse Practitioner’s Community Health Clinic, our Clinic today has a holistic, quality and community approach to healthcare.
Our mission is to provide high quality and compassionate healthcare to children, from birth to 21 years, of families who are underserved (uninsured and underinsured), regardless of ethnicity, geographic residency or ability to pay. We work with each family to achieve its health goal, recognizing that attending to medical needs may be just the beginning. We believe high quality healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We provide excellent care for any child, however our vision is to make sure that children who don’t have a place to go have a really great place to go.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
In 2010 / 2011 we provided over 3,300 healthcare visits for children. Of this number 13.6% of them were uninsured; 85.7% were on the Oregon Health Plan, and less than 1% had private insurance.
Over 1600 of the children we saw in 2010 / 2011 were from families with incomes at 100% below the federal poverty level, that is the lowest levels of income.
39% of the patients we saw were Caucasian, 27% were African American, 14% were Hispanic, nearly 16% were multi-ethnic or of unknown ethnicity, 4% were Asian, and under 0.5% were Native American.
