The health center provides a culturally sensitive medical home, especially for refugees and low-income community members, facilitating wellness and self-sufficiency by addressing health, education, economic and spiritual barriers in order to demonstrate Jesus' unconditional love for the whole person.
The center has two locations in Buffalo as well as a health center in Sierra Leone and a medical clinic in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
