Our mission is to build better futures through the delivery of health care, education, and social services. We embrace culturally diverse communities to provide them with the highest quality of care, regardless of ability to pay.
Mary’s Center has opened a model school-based health center in Fort Totten in Northeast Washington, DC, thanks to the initiative and leadership of our partners Briya and Bridges Public Charter Schools. Located at 100 Gallatin Street NE, a five-minute walk from the Fort Totten Metro (green, red, and yellow lines), the 81,000-square-foot building enables Mary’s Center and our partners to improve health and education outcomes in Ward 5 and help families to build better futures and move up the economic ladder. When fully operational the Center will serve 15,000 people each year. The new center is just one of the projects in our exciting expansion campaign, The Promise of Tomorrow.
Mary’s Center’s has received national recognition for its life-transforming programs and services, innovative leaders, engaged employees and exemplary stewardship of resources.
This year, Mary’s Center made a difference in the lives of over 36,000 individuals from over 100 countries. We helped our participants enroll for health insurance, manage chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes, learn English and develop important job skills.
In the last two decades, Mary’s Center’s Social Change Model, which integrates healthcare, education and social support, has received national and global attention. In March 2016, we were honored to host Cuban officials including the Vice Minister in the Ministry of Public Health, and the Director of the Tropical Medicine Institute. This was the first high-level delegation from Cuba’s health ministry to visit the US.Read More
