Mary’s Center for Maternal and Child Care is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to build better futures through the delivery of free health care, education, and social services. In 1988, President and CEO, Maria Gomez, founded Mary’s Center as a community-based nonprofit organization focused on maternal and child care for immigrant women from Central America who were displaced by civil war and life casualties.
Today, Mary’s Center is a federally qualified health center that provides primary health care, social services and education to the underserved, underinsured and non-insured members of our Washington Metropolitan area. For over 20 years, the Center has embraced culturally diverse communities to provide them with the highest quality of care, regardless of their ability to pay. Additionally, Mary’s Center is a Core Service Agency contracted by the District of Columbia Department of Mental Health.
