Early Childhood Development Clinician

Unity Health Care

About the organization

From the start, Unity Health Care has been committed to serving the health needs of our communities. Originally founded in 1985 as Health Care for the Homeless Project (HCHP), HCHP provided primary health care services to homeless individuals and families that resided in local emergency shelters or on the streets of the District of Columbia. In 1997, HCHP officially changed its name to Unity Health Care as care expanded from serving people experiencing homelessness to providing primary and specialty care to District residents. Over the past three decades we have grown into a network of over 20 traditional and non-traditional health centers and a medical outreach mobile unit.

As reflected in our history, Unity is more committed than ever to further unify services in convenient and accessible health centers to make our families and communities healthier.
