Throughout Los Angeles County, thousands of families living below the poverty line are not only experiencing extreme financial hardship, they are often without access to essential medical care and basic social services.
To answer their pressing need, Cedars-Sinai created COACH for Kids and Their Families®, a program of the Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center. COACH provides no-cost health and social services to underserved communities in Los Angeles.
On a regular basis, two COACH mobile medical units travel to schools, shelters, public housing developments and neighborhood facilities in communities across 28 Los Angeles zip codes, providing the highest quality care.
Since 1994, when the COACH program was launched, we have helped more than 145,000 individuals receive vital healthcare services free of charge. In 2012 alone, COACH provided more than 30,000 services.
