A Message from Our CEOFifty years ago, People’s Health Clinic, later renamed Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers in honor of its first CEO, was established to address the chronic barriers to quality healthcare experienced by many residents in the St. Louis metropolitan region. Within a half decade of community service and advocacy, the People’s Family of Corporations (PFC) was established as an umbrella organization to provide an integrated approach to much needed primary care, behavioral health, and economic support community members require.
People’s Family of Corporations is comprised primarily of three Gold Standard independent and inter-related healthcare and socio-economic agencies:
a. Amanda Luckett Murphy Hopewell Center (Hopewell), a premier behavioral health agency and Department of Health administrative agent which has served the St. Louis City community for more than 40 years
b. Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers (PHC), a premier primary care federally-qualified health center (FQHC) which celebrates its 50th year of exemplary community service in 2022; and
c. People’s Community Action Corporation (PCAC), a community-based support agency which has served the socio-economic needs of residents of the City of St. Louis and City of Wellston for more than 10 years.
PFC, and its collection of agencies, is well qualified to address current and future challenges of health as well as economic inequities challenging our vulnerable communities.
