About Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers
Founded in 1969, Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers has proudly cared for the south side of Milwaukee and Waukesha for 50 years. We provide the highest quality medical, behavioral health, and substance use care to every person who walks through our doors. But what separates our care is the deep understanding of social determinants of health and the years of development of programming to address these factors, both inside and beyond our clinic walls. It has been woven into the Sixteenth Street experience from day one.
We meet people where they live, work, learn, and play --- through proactive social services screening in our clinics, specialized diabetes and asthma programming, obesity intervention and prevention, an integrated Women, Infants and Children (WIC) site, environmental programming to create resident-directed impact of the built and natural environment where our patients live, and more. We are proud to be recognized as more than a health clinic, but rather as a living, breathing part of the neighborhoods we love and serve.
Through four full service bilingual clinics, a satellite geriatric clinic, and five in-school clinics, Sixteenth Street cares for nearly ...43,000 primarily low-income, Latino or diverse individuals each year. At Sixteenth Street, we value and respect all people, protecting the right to wellness, and never turning anyone away.
