The 1970s In 1971, NEVHC was incorporated as a nonprofit public benefit corporation in the State of California. The San Fernando Health Center was opened and officially dedicated in 1973 by U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy. Our second healthcare site, the Pacoima Health Center, opened in 1975, and our Substance Abuse program began in 1977.
The year 1987 was an exciting and momentous time for NEVHC. First, we collaborated with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to provide healthcare services on the campus of San Fernando High School. The school-based Teen Health Center received national recognition as a “Models That Work” program in Washington, DC. During that same year, NEVHC became the sponsoring agency for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Supplemental Nutrition Program in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. In 1988, NEVHC became the lead agency for the Collaborative Homeless Health Care project, which at the time was a..Read more
