About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of the Santa Cruz Women's Health Center is to provide quality health services and to advocate the feminist goals of social, political and economic equality.

We are dedicated to providing access to culturally appropriate and affordable medical services for the county’s low-income, uninsured and underinsured residents. We have a particular commitment to providing services to those who face barriers to care due to economic status, disability, sexual orientation, mental illness, or immigration status.


Founded in 1974, SCWHC is a private nonprofit primary heath care and health education center operated by and for women. The center provides quality health care services in a unique setting. Our approach includes a strong commitment to health care maintenance, health education, advocacy, cultural sensitivity, affordability and personalized care.

Who We Serve

The women who use our services come from all walks of life and reflect the rich diversity of our community. It is our intention to provide needed services to women and children of all races, classes, religions, physical abilities, cultures, ages and sexual orientations.

How We Are Funded

The Santa Cruz Women's Health Center is a private nonprofit organization with a community Board of Directors. We are funded by client fees, donations, local and state government, foundations, corporate grants, and fundraising activities. Donations are tax deductible and are very welcome!
