The KHEIR Center is committed to providing linguistically and culturally-sensitive quality
primary healthcare and human services support to the underserved and uninsured residents of Southern California.


The KHEIR Center was established in 1986 to serve as a bridge between the low-income, recently-immigrated, non-English speaking Korean community and the local health and social service providers. Today, KHEIR has evolved into a broad-based agency that provides services to the indigent population in four interrelated areas: Human Services, Senior Affordable Housing, Adult Day Health Care, and Healthcare Services.

In addition to the two adult day health care facilities and human services department, KHEIR currently operates the nation's only full-time community clinic with the Korean, Spanish and English language capabilities. In February 2006, the KHEIR Center opened the doors to its new home. Offering one-stop convenient service, the 2nd floor of the KOA Building at 3727 W. 6th Street is home to the consolidated Clinic, Human Services Department and the Administration. Primary goal for the KHEIR Community Clinic is to increase the public's access to quality healthcare by gradually growing its service capacity to 30,000 patient visits per year. Not only is KHEIR planning to increase capacity in order to expand access, we're also striving to fill the gap in specialty services as there is a paucity of such affordable services for our constituency.
