Welcome to Honor Community Health!
Honor Community Health is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) community health center with 16 sites throughout Oakland County, Michigan – including six integrated primary care sites, one dental site, a mobile dental bus, four school-based health centers and four school-based empowerment zones.
As a federally qualified health center (FQHC), Honor Community Health provide access to primary, behavioral health, dental care, and other specialty services to the communities we serve – regardless of insurance status, place of residence or ability to pay. FQHCs are governed by a consumer-majority, volunteer Board of Directors that are connected to the communities we serve.
Honor Community Health’s primary focus is to provide high quality health services to those who have little or no access to health care, regardless of income or insurance status.
To provide for the health and wellness needs of the underserved of Oakland County through the provision of comprehensive, integrated primary, behavioral health, and dental care.
HCH seeks to “honor” its community and patients; to make a difference in lives and support being well, both mentally and physically. As part of supporting the community and its patients, and to maintain its FQHC status, HCH engages in regular community health needs assessments which inform future programming, planning, leveraging resources, and mobilization efforts around health priorities. This community health needs assessment describes the health status and social determinants of health of the community in which it serves.
This needs assessment was done in collaboration with Oakland University’s Department of Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Community Health Engagement and Empowerment Research Lab (CHEER Lab) and grew out of the Healthy Pontiac, We Can! coalition.

What is Integrated Healthcare?
At a time when finding reliable and affordable care can be a confusing and intimidating process, Honor Community Health is able to combine quality, patient-driven primary healthcare services with unmatched accessibility, flexibility and personal consideration.
Our community health centers offer an Integrated Primary Care approach – a patient-centered method that combines medical, dental and behavioral health services to more fully address the spectrum of problems patients bring to primary care.
Honor Community Health is a Health Care for the Homeless Center!
Our mission is to meet the health and wellness needs of vulnerable populations throughout Oakland County – including the homeless – through the provision of integrated primary care.
In spring of 2015, Honor Community Health was awarded a Healthcare for the Homeless (HCH) grant, allowing homeless individuals in Oakland County access to quality health care services from our highly trained clinicians. Honor Community Health is one of only a couple hundred HCH-funded providers in the United States.
Our HCH program is community-based, and provides comprehensive primary care, specialty care, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, dental care and other supportive services for the homeless.
If you are currently staying in an emergency shelter, on the street, camping out or even staying with a friend temporarily, you may be eligible for our services through the Healthcare for the Homeless program.
