Board of Directors

A unique aspect of a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is that it must be governed by a community board composed of a majority (51% or more) of health center patients who represent the population served. The Center for Family Health has a 13-member Governing Board of Directors who define and preserve the mission of the organization while serving as the voice of the community. They provide oversight and strategic direction for the organization and are leading ambassadors for our work.
