Donate Today!

Our Annual Appeal has begun. Please consider donating today! Your gift in any amount will help us meet our fundraising goals and transform the lives of our city’s most vulnerable residents. 

Whittier Street Health Center, a large urban community health care serving more than 30,000 of Boston’s most vulnerable residents and all Massachusetts community health care centers are in current financial peril and require financial support in order to avoid a partial or complete collapse of the state’s largest primary care network and, most urgently, a vitally important part of the Commonwealth’s response to this public health crisis. At Whittier Street Health Center, we have transitioned our organization to rapidly respond to the need for screening and testing of COVID-19 patients at both of our clinic sites (1290 Tremont Street and 279 Blue Hill Ave in Roxbury) and on our Mobile Health Van, while also continuing to address the urgent non-COVID-19 related medical needs of the vulnerable communities we serve. We have expanded our social services programs to meet the needs of our vulnerable patients, including adding an Emergency Daycare Program to provide care to the children of our brave essential staff in the city, expanding our Food Pantry, Medication delivery, and transportation services. We are also in need of PPEs to protect our dedicated staff and patients. Donations can be made on our website at Donation Page

We rely on generous friends like YOU to keep offering these vital programs and services.

You can donate to Whittier online, via check, or by calling our Development Department. We welcome gifts of all sizes. Please consider making a monthly donation, honoring someone with a gift to Whittier that will give back all year long, or making a memorial bequest. Our Development office is here to help (617)989-3119.

A note about Whittier and COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in our area, we ask all clients and patients to call ahead before coming to any of our sites. We are working to take care of most clients/patients via phone/video encounter so we can meet your ongoing healthcare needs. This is for your safety and so we can provide the highest quality of care to you while following CDC guidance for COVID-19. Please call 617-427-1000 for any questions or concerns.

Whittier will provide COVID-19 testing from 10 am to 4 pm on Monday to Friday. Following CDC guidance, we recommend testing if you have a fever AND one of the following three symptoms: cough OR shortness of breath OR sore throat. Please bring your picture identification and your insurance card (if you have insurance).
