DePaul Community Health Centers
The mission of DePaul Community Health Centers, inspired by the Daughters of Charity, is to improve the health and well-being of their community and to be a presence of the Love of Jesus in the lives of all they serve and with whom they partner.
DePaul Community Health Centers (DCHC), formerly Daughters of Charity Health Centers, works in line with the goals of their founders, the Daughters of Charity, who have provided compassionate health care to the New Orleans community for nearly two centuries. Since 1992, the Daughters have focused their efforts on addressing the health of the whole person, mind, body and spirit. DCHC operates ten health centers in Algiers, Bywater, Carrollton, Gentilly, Gretna, Kenner, Desire, Metairie, New Orleans East and Prytania. Telehealth services also are available. DCHC provides care for all with an emphasis on poor and vulnerable communities.
DCHC has several events, fundraisers and special programs that take place throughout the year, including the Keeping Our Promises Gala, Champions FORE Health Golf Tournament, Read for Your Health program, Seton Medication Fund and Give NOLA Day. These events and programs, which are tied to DCHC’s mission and service within the community, help generate funds the organization relies on to continue the work of the Daughters of Charity in offering holistic care for the individual.
Donations to DCHC serve a critical role in preserving their capacity to provide much-needed services to underserved members of the community. Funds raised go directly toward providing health screenings, services and medications for patients.
