Spotlight on Downtown Oakland Health Center:
DOC was created to be the home base for LifeLong’s Supportive Housing Program (SHP) and to serve the immediate community in inner-city Oakland. The clinic was launched in 2003 as a satellite office for SHP providers and five years later started offering walk-in services.
