LOS ANGELES - April 9, 2024 - PRLog -- T.H.E. (To Help Everyone) Health and Wellness Centers, a Los Angeles pillar of healthcare access for five decades, recently celebrated a golden anniversary. This remarkable non-profit has provided unwavering commitment to serving the community's most vulnerable for 50 years.

"All of us in this room have jobs providing services to the underserved," Clifford Shiepe, CEO and President of T.H.E. stated. "It's a job that will never end." Appropriately he included "Our clinics will have a purpose indefinitely."

Sylvia Drew Ivie, former T.H.E. Executive Director and now Senior Special Assistant to the President and CEO for External Affairs at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine & Science had this to say "Community healthcare is a joy. It's just a joy because you're in partnership with people who love you, who feel at home with you". She went on to close with "I think what makes it so special is that it was built on heart and caring for community. "

A Legacy of Holistic Care for the Community

T.H.E. began in 1974 with a single clinic in South Los Angeles, offering care to women in South Los Angeles. Over the years, they've grown to encompass six clinics across the city, treating over 13,000 patients annually. Their holistic approach focuses on preventive care, primary care, and behavioral health services, empowering patients to take charge of their well-being.  They further serve the community by offering educational classes on various health topics.

Thanking Those Who Made a Difference

In a unique twist on traditional anniversary galas, T.H.E. partnered with Event Solutions to host a "legacy luncheon" to celebrate their 50th year.  The event focused on expressing gratitude to the individuals and organizations who have supported their mission.

"We wanted to do something different," said Clifford Shiepe.

The luncheon featured prominent figures like U.S. Representative Maxine Waters and Deputy Mayor Jacqueline Hamilton, who all acknowledged the vital role T.H.E. plays in providing healthcare access to underserved communities.

Looking Forward to a Brighter Future

As T.H.E. Health and Wellness Centers celebrate this milestone, they remain dedicated to their mission of improving the health and well-being of the Los Angeles community.  With a strong foundation and unwavering dedication, they are poised to continue their legacy of service for another 50 years and beyond.
