"From the Coastal Health Alliance in Western Marin to Mendocino Community Health Clinic to Mendocino Coast Clinic to the Open Door Community Health Centers that serve Humboldt and Del Norte counties, to Russian River Health Clinic, each health center is a vital part of the network protecting the lives and well-being of tens of thousands of people that call California’s North Coast home. You have difficult challenges with funding and serving the needs of so many who look to you for quality health care. And, as you recover from the 2015 fire, the New Russian River Health & Wellness Center has even more hurdles to cross. You are making great progress, and I know this center will continue to be a community hub for health and wellbeing, including integrated medical, behavioral health care, dental care for years to come---a great home to America’s Health Care Heroes!” - U.S. Congressman Jared Huffman, 2nd District California

"Whereas, since its inception, the Occidental Area Health Center (OAHC) has grown to become one of the finest community-based healthcare organizations in Sonoma County, providing high quality, comprehensive health services, particularly to the growing number of underserved and marginalized populations in the area." - Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, Resolution, 8.16.2016
