Celebrating 50 years of community health
This year, Tapestry is celebrating 50 years of community health! Over the years, we have met emerging community needs with stigma-free healthcare and are committed to doing so as we advance. Tapestry’s fundamental value is that compassionate, culturally competent, and dignified healthcare is a human right.

What people say
My son used to be a picky eater, but since I have been coming to WIC, I have learned how to introduce new foods, like whole grains into his diet. I feel like he is eating healthier now.
Harm Reduction Participant
I have saved 15 people from death by reversing an overdose with Narcan I got from Tapestry.
Sexual Health Client
I went to Tapestry on my own at 17 to get my first pelvic exam and discuss birth control before I started having sex. As a young girl without a mother, Tapestry made me feel safe.
