Who we serve

Our patient population looks like the communities we serve: it’s wonderfully diverse, and we are pleased to be the trusted provider for all of our patients and their unique needs.

There is no one-size-fits-all care at CCI. We know that many factors contribute to each patient’s well-being, and we are partners in discovering individual care paths that lead to better outcomes.

Our History

Picture of our original clinic in an older house in Maryland.


A group of volunteer health professionals saw a substantial need for health services for at-risk adolescents in Montgomery County, Maryland, opening as Rockville’s Roving Youth Leader Program in 1969.


In 1972, this group is incorporated as a non-profit organization under the name Community Clinic, Inc (CCI).
