Mary’s Center, founded in 1988, is a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides health care, family literacy and social services to individuals whose needs too often go unmet by the public and private systems. Mary’s Center uses a holistic, multipronged approach to help each participant access individualized services that set them on the path toward good health, stable families, and economic independence. The Center offers high-quality, professional care in a safe and trusting environment to residents from the entire DC metropolitan region, including individuals from over 110 countries.

Our President Joined Transition Committee

We are proud to announce that our President and CEO, Maria Gomez, has been invited by the newly elected DC Mayor, Muriel Bowser, to be part of her transition team.
In her role, Maria will share her vast experience in the health arena with the new Mayor with the purpose of having a smooth transition, and working for a healthier city.
This is the third time that Maria has served in DC Mayor's transition teams. Current Mayor Vincent Gray and former Mayor Adrian Fenty also named her as their health advisor.
We look forward to working with the new administration!

Help us Provide a Warm Thanksgiving Celebration!

Every year, during Thanksgiving, Mary's Center has provided around 300-350 turkeys to our most needy families. This year, we'll continue our tradition. Our families need it and they look forward to it.
We invite you to join us in this effort by donating turkeys, canned goods, or a monetary contribution. Click here for more information, and here to see photos of past distributions. Thank you in advance!
