Western Center strives to ensure that every poor Californian is able to:
- Access affordable health care
- Receive quality, comprehensive health care services
- Have appropriate consumer protections when accessing health care services
We focus on implementing health care reform; extending coverage to the uninsured; strengthening county indigent health care programs; expanding mental health services and stopping illegal debt collection practices.
Western Center is a member of the Health Consumer Alliance, a partnership of consumer assistance programs operated by community-based legal services organizations. Its common mission is to help Californians obtain essential health care. More information about the HCA can be found at healthconsumer.org.
