We are culturally and linguistically sensitive to individuals and families we serve. Our target areas involve the Metro Boston and its surrounding communities. Our goal is to "work together with the community and other health institutions to provide better health, better care and reduce health costs.

CCHER considers by many as a "point of entry" for many immigrants, the uninsured and underserved individuals and their families.

As part of our mission, we will continue to deliver high intensive and quality care and services to those that need them regardless of their ability to pay and to deliver services in a cost effective, culturally and linguistically competent manner.
