50 Years Strong: La Clínica’s Multi-Generational Impact
As I reflect on the history of La Clínica, the word that comes to mind is tenacity. For over 50 years, La Clínica has been key to ensuring that communities in the East Bay, especially diverse and medically underserved populations, have access to health care that is affordable, high quality, and both culturally and linguistically appropriate.
Caring For Community Across Four Generations
To say that the Figueroas are part of the patient family at La Clínica is an understatement. Four generations of the family have been receiving care since La Clínica first opened its doors back in 1971.

La Clínica Rolls Out COVID-19 Vaccines
Early in 2021, La Clínica began offering COVID-19 vaccines to communities most at risk of contracting the disease, including older patients, immunocompromised patients, and essential workers. As the demand for vaccines grew, La Clínica scaled up its COVID vaccine clinics to vaccinate as many people as possible.
La Clínica also educated the community about the benefits of the vaccines through direct outreach in multiple languages while working to dispel vaccine myths and disinformation.
These vaccines have been instrumental in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and keeping communities healthy and safe. To date, more than 116,000 COVID vaccine doses have been given to the community.
La Clínica Expands Access to Health Care in Vallejo
La Clínica’s newest comprehensive health center opened in downtown Vallejo in fall of 2021. The new service site in the heart of the city offers integrated services—including dental care and optometry services—all under one roof.
By doubling our previous capacity, the 26,000-square-foot facility is expanding access to full-scope healthcare services and enrollment assistance for health insurance coverage and programs such as CalFresh and WIC.
The new health center will also help spur economic revitalization for the city by expanding foot traffic to the local business and providing 100 full-time jobs for the people of the community. This includes $7.8 million in wages and benefits distributed annually and more than $1 million of goods and services purchased annually.
La Clínica Recognized as 2021 Nonprofit of the Year
In 2021, California State Senator Steve Glazer selected La Clínica de La Raza as “Non-Profit of the Year.”
He chose La Clínica because it has been critical to Contra Costa County’s vaccination efforts, including teaming up with Contra Costa County to facilitate COVID testing and vaccinations for communities of color and other underserved and disproportionately impacted communities.
“I am proud to honor La Clínica for its vital work in providing much-needed health services when the Coronavirus pandemic was at its worst,” said Senator Glazer. “Without La Clínica’s devotion to maintaining health care access, there is no telling how much worse the effects of COVID-19 would have been to communities of color and other underserved people. We are indebted to nonprofit organizations like La Clínica, which is fulfilling a truly critical mission that is so valuable to us all.”
