Our Mission & Our Work

Street Level Health Project is an Oakland-based grassroots organization dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of underserved urban immigrant communities in the Bay Area.

Our community center is an entry point to the health care and social service system for those most often overlooked and neglected, namely the uninsured, underinsured, and recently arrived.

We bring health care to the uninsured
community through our free health screening clinic and patient health navigation program.

We provide temporary assistance
for those with basic needs in food, clothing, and social support.

We address the root causes of poor health
by empowering and supporting low-wage immigrant workers to be active participants in their lives, their families, and their communities.

We tackle institutional and systemic barriers
to health equity through advocacy and coalition building with organizations committed to building power for disenfranchised communities.

Street Level develops trusting relationships with isolated immigrants, offers them a place to build a healthy and vibrant community, and empowers them to advocate for the wellbeing of themselves and their families.

Our expertise is working with men, many of whom face societal, cultural, occupational, and familial barriers that prevent them from accessing health care. Click here to see our document “Barriers to Healthcare in the Street Level Communities.”
