Giving Back: CrescentCare

Nonprofit Profile
Ground has been broken and construction began on a new health home at 1631 Elysian Fields in 2017


CrescentCare is a community health center with a number of locations across New Orleans serving the greater community on a sliding scale, regardless of insurance status. It was founded over 30 years ago as NO/AIDS Task Force and expanded to become a Federally Qualified Health Center in 2014. Now the agency provides services including primary medical care, dental care and behavioral health, and features specialties like OB-GYN, pediatrics and sexual health. CrescentCare is dedicated to offering comprehensive wrap-around services tailored to individuals.

CrescentCare is expanding this year, constructing a health center in the heart of the 8th ward to provide incredible services to more of the community!


In addition to a series of fundraising events each year to support its programs, CrescentCare launched its Deeply Rooted/Branching Out initiative in early 2018 a capital campaign to raise $4 million to complete the funding on a new health center being constructed. It will triple CresentCare’s capacity to serve the community, currently over 8,900 patients are being served.

CrescentCare remains dedicated to HIV prevention and treatment in the New Orleans area by administering thousands of HIV tests for no cost each year and hosting Art Against AIDS and the Chevron New Orleans Walk To End HIV.
