Since its doors opened, Mary’s Center has grown from a small basement clinic that served 200 women a year to a multisite, multidisciplinary community health center serving nearly 60,000 men, women, and children in seven locations in the District of Columbia and Maryland. Over the last decades, we have broken barriers to care by developing over 30 services including our School-Based Mental Health, Integrated Recovery, and Telemedicine programs.

Our Mission

Mary’s Center embraces all communities and provides high-quality healthcare, education, and social services to build better futures.

Our Values

Mary’s Center believes the following values are essential to delivering high-quality services:

  • Participant-centeredness: As an organization, we use our cultural competency and compassion to promote and celebrate diversity by placing the needs of our participants and community first. 
  • Accountability: We embrace our roles, take responsibility for our actions, and are empowered to take smart risks because innovation leads to growth.
  • Respect: We foster an honest and supportive environment free from judgement where all voices are valued. 
  • Teamwork: We actively collaborate by sharing knowledge and seeking input to effectively reach organizational goals.

Our Model

We recognized early on that caring only for your physical health concerns was simply not enough. To put you and your family on a path towards good health, stability, and economic independence, we knew we had to look at every part of your life and offer the appropriate combination of healthcare, education, and social support.

With this in mind, we developed our Social Change Model (SCM), which allows us to offer medical, dental, and behavioral health services for the entire family, along with social services and family literacy services – all under one roof.
