Serving the Community

A HEALTHIER D.C.

For over thirteen years, LCHC has connected communities to the tools, programs and services that eliminate health disparities and promote healthy behaviors.

We establish standards of care that focus on prevention, improving access to health services, healthy stores, and recreational opportunities in the community, and linking community members at health risks to health providers and social services.

Our goal is for a healthier D.C; for everyone to be afforded health coverage, access to and quality of care for overall health and wellness.

WHY LCHC

Faith institutions do this because of our
nature, mission, capacity and need

Organized by faith leaders for faith leaders to address burgeoning health and social service issues.
