Health Care Center for the Homeless, Inc.

Health Care Center for the Homeless, Inc. (HCCH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1993 by Dr. Rick Baxley, a volunteer physician who saw the need to provide quality health care services to the homeless population in Orlando.  The dental program was launched in 1995 and behavioral health counseling services were added in 2002, rounding out the core services provided by HCCH. 

In 2003, Mr. Bakari Burns assumed the responsibilities of CEO at HCCH. Within 18 months of his arrival, Mr. Burns had written several successful grant bids, including one for $500,000 from the Department of Health. For years, HCCH operated out of three separate locations. In 2006, HCCH opened Orange Blossom Family Health near downtown Orlando, allowing for many services to be provided in one central location.

HCCH now operates seven Orange Blossom Family Health locations within the tri-county area and Orange Blossom Pediatrics on the campus of the OCPS Academic Center for Excellence.  HCCH's mission is accomplished through the provision of quality, affordable health care services that are accessible to everyone regardless of their ethnicity, socia-economic status, or ability to pay.
