The Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc.
Organizational Member Since December 2018
The Community Health Center of Buffalo, Inc. (CHCB) is a safety net for a diverse population in need of access to comprehensive primary care health care. A significant number live at or below the poverty line who are Medicaid and Medicare eligible. Many have been negatively impacted by stereotypes and stigmas and are eligible for protection under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which prohibits discrimination based on age, race, national origin, religious beliefs, gender and sexual orientation, disability (mental or physical), pregnancy and veteran status. It is imperative for us to be at any table where discussions around stigma are being had because our mission is to serve those who typically must endure it.
