To improve the health and well-being of Milwaukee and surrounding communities, by providing quality, patient-centered, family-based health care, health education and social services, free from linguistic, cultural and economic barriers.

Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers will work to narrow health disparities and access gaps, and improve the environment where people live, work, learn and play.  In order to deepen our impact on people’s lives, our care will extend beyond the vital and high quality care provided within our clinics, and will also extend beyond the four walls of our exam rooms in order to give individuals and families the support, services, and self-empowerment they need to make wellness a sustainable reality.   We will leverage an organization-wide system to address the social and environmental needs of our patients, clients, participants and community by leveraging collaborations with the robust network of partner agencies and organizations addressing needs of individuals and families.

  •  Respect for Our Patients and for Each Other
  •  Access to Quality Health Care for All People

Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee



We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
