North by Northeast Community Health Center is the only medical clinic in Oregon focused on African American health and exists to improve health outcomes and advance health equity by offering primary care services focused on chronic health conditions affecting the local African American community. At all levels of our organization, we strive to reflect the diversity of the community we serve.


Since our founding in 2006, North by Northeast Community Health Center’s fundraising has been overseen and implemented by our Executive Director and Medical Director, with support from various other staff members.
