FHCHC has had AmeriCorps members from Community HealthCorps since 2010. Working with CHCACT, these members do a variety of service projects throughout their year at the clinic and also work with maintaining and expanding vital programs at the clinic, including working with the Centering Pregnancy groups, health education, and outreach to the community.
