Roots Community Health Center
Founded in 2008, Roots Community Health Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the status of health of East Bay residents. Roots implements its mission by providing high-quality, comprehensive and culturally appropriate health care, by implementing direct service models to increase access to care and thereby prevent the need for emergency services, and by coordinating cross-agency liaisons to ensure a more efficient, continuum of care in East Oakland. Roots Community Health Center was founded to address the growing need for accessible, culturally appropriate, community-responsive, comprehensive health care in Oakland, California. Specifically, Roots aims to eliminate wide health disparities and improve health outcomes for uninsured and low-income residents of East Oakland.
