About Us

The Community Health Association is a champion for community-based health centers and clinics located in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. We provide services to support our diverse membership in providing access to care and quality health services to the most vulnerable communities.

The Community Health Association Inland Southern Region was founded in 2009, incorporated in 2010, and designated a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2011. The non-profit association supports community health centers and clinics serving the safety net in the Inland Southern Region.

The Association provides advocacy, public policy promotion and education, as well as resources and networking opportunities for 18 organizations in the membership which represent 49 community-based primary care health centers and clinics throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In 2016, member health centers and clinics reported 406,700 annual patient visits, serving 143,069 unduplicated patients across the Inland Southern Region.


We exist to support our membership and community partners to ensure accessible, high-quality, and cost-effective health services.
