KDCHC services are focused on the health and wellbeing of our community.  Our mission is to ensure access to a broad range of services for people who have many barriers to accessing what is important to wellbeing such as good health care, including oral health care; a safe place to call home; access to healthy food and: a strong sense of community belonging.  Living wage is one concrete way for KDCHC to support the overwhelming evidence that income is a key determinant for health and well being and an investment in our community.
