Our Mission Statement

Open Door Community Health Centers provides quality medical, dental, and mental health care
and health education to all regardless of financial, geographic, or social barriers.

Healthcare For Our Community

Open Door Community Health Centers was founded with a vision to provide excellent health care and health education to a part of California, at a time when the region suffered from a shortage of access.

Starting as a single clinic in 1971, Open Door now has 12 community health centers across Humboldt and Del Norte counties – a service area larger than the state of Connecticut – serving more than 55,000 patients a year and employing almost 600 members of the community.
