The AMOR Wellness Center – Mendota is a rural hub of services designed to address the extreme poverty entrenched in California’s Central Valley.
For years, agencies have invested their resources to fight this poverty with limited success. The breadth and depth of the needs in rural communities, combined with the lack of adequate space and high overhead, has limited the impact of what any one community benefit, county or state agency can achieve on its own.
Through a public, private and non-profit collaboration, the AMOR Wellness Center will provide an unprecedented group of essential services including medical, behavioral health, dental, social, youth and education, directly in Mendota – a rural community of 12,000 desperately in need of this comprehensive support.
The children and families living in California’s rural Central Valley deserve the opportunity to establish themselves as contributing members of our economy with a clear path out of the poverty that has plagued them for generations. The AMOR Wellness Center is building that path.
