¡Prospera! means prosperous, successful, fortunate, and fair. In a word, it encompasses all that Virginia Garcia stands for, and our hopes for our patients and community. Since our founding in 1975, to today, our mission has remained the same: to provide high-quality, culturally appropriate care to those who need it most, with a special emphasis on migrant and seasonal farmworkers and others with barriers to receiving healthcare. Today, Virginia Garcia operates 6 primary care clinics, 6 dental clinics, 1 reproductive care clinic, and 5 school-based health centers serving over 52,000 patients across Washington and Yamhill counties. In addition to these locations, Virginia Garcia operates a mobile clinic that is critical to providing care to those who need it, right where they live, work, and gather. 98% percent of patients are from low-income households, 42.7% are 21 years of age or younger, and 18% are farm or agricultural workers.
Together with our staff, supporters, and partners, we can make this hope a reality for those we serve and who count on us as their healthcare home. We invite you to take part in a joyous night benefiting Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center. We will celebrate our accomplishments from the past year and look to the future with optimism and hope.
