A Message from Our CEO
For more than 40 years, Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers and the People’s Family of Corporations have recognized the impact of socioeconomic stress on the health of our communities. Too often, underserved communities are preoccupied with the challenges and activities of daily living at the expense of focusing on family health maintenance and wellness issues.
In response to these and other community concerns, Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers has established “community support” corporations that have proved successful beyond its well-known health center. While primary care community health services remains the foundation of our community efforts, Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers also deploys the resources of our Mental Health Center (Amanda Luckett Murphy Hopewell Center) and our People’s Community Action Corporation (PCAC), to address the total needs of our underserved communities.
