The Center's mission is to build a healthy community through culturally and linguistically competent preventive health, disease education and management, and research programs and advocacy. Since its inception, the Chinese community of the San Francisco Bay Area has come to recognize the Chinese Community Health Resource Center as a leader and principal source of culturally competent health education programs. Over the years, CCHRC has launched numerous culturally and linguistically appropriate health education programs, which were considered first in the nation, namely, Chinese-speaking "I can Cope" cancer support group, Men's Health Day, Women's Health Day, and Chinese Community Fitness Day, to name a few.
