Pillars Community Health is a nonprofit provider of health and social services, with 11 locations in the western and southwestern suburbs of Chicago.

Our mission is to provide health, social, and educational services to build strong, healthy communities. We envision communities where all people have equal access to the care they need, when they need it. To that end, we are committed to eliminating barriers to care such as language, income, or stigma. Many of our services are available in both English and Spanish; some services are offered in Arabic. Some services are available free of charge; others are offered on a sliding fee scale (meaning the amount you pay depends on your ability to pay).

Pillars Community Health was created by the merger of Pillars and Community Nurse Health Center in January 2018. We can trace our history back to 1921 through predecessor agencies.
