Special Populations

Health centers are community-based and patient-directed organizations that serve populations with limited access to health care. These include low income populations, the uninsured, those with limited English proficiency. Some health centers also receive specific funding to focus on certain special populations:

  • migrant and seasonal farmworkers
  • individuals and families experiencing homelessness
  • those living in public housing
  • Native Hawaiians

In 2011, health centers served 862,808 migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families; more than 1 million individuals experiencing homelessness; 187,991 residents of public housing; and 8,423 (data has not yet been updated for 2011) Native Hawaiians. Source:
