How Well Do You Know Poway

A Special Message from “Friends of the Gold Family Health Center"


In Poway, 699 families and 4,437 individuals are living on less than $24,250 per year. Also, did you know that Poway does not have a community health center to care for these individuals?

So Why is This Information Important?

The poorest among us either have no health insurance or struggle to pay expensive co-pay and out-of-pocket health costs. Many that now have coverage under the Affordable Care Act, can’t find a physician accepting new Medi-Cal patients. A Poway community healthcare center will provide a local, healthcare “Home”....offering a broad range of free or affordable services: prenatal care, health screenings, primary care and immunizations.

The Good News! Construction for The Gold Family Health Center Starts This Year!

Neighborhood Healthcare has raised $2.4 million or 80 percent the funds needed to build the health center in Poway. Construction will start in late spring and we encourage you to give a gift of any amount to be part of this important community health center that will care for over 7,500 people a year in Poway and the surrounding communities.
