Our Concepts

Peninsula HealthCare Connection is rebuilding lives through integrated primary, preventative, and mental healthcare for the homeless and fostering partnerships and collaborative activities to achieve this vision.


Peninsula HealthCare Connection (PHC) was founded in 2005 and is the only fully licensed medical facility providing free, direct healthcare services to homeless and low-income residents of North Santa Clara County. The clinic is located within the Opportunity Center in Palo Alto, and is staffed in part by Palo Alto Medical Foundation Medical Doctors.
