Family Health Centers Refugee and Immigrant Health Services program is dedicated to providing culturally and linguistically appropriate care to Louisville’s newest neighbors. FHC strives to be a welcoming place for everyone in need of health care services. We will not ask about immigration status, nor do we require Social Security Numbers for those we serve. Our sliding-fee discount program and variety of support services help us to welcome, care for, and accompany everyone.
FHC-Americana is home to our Refugee and Immigrant Health Services program. FHC provides Refugee Health Assessments for Louisville’s newly arrived refugees. This comprehensive health assessment follows guidance from the CDC and includes the following:
The Survivors of Torture Services (STS) program is a service to refugees and immigrants who have experienced or witnessed torture in their home countries. We provide a place for community, we offer survivors the opportunity to reclaim safety, capability, productivity, and hope.
STS services include:
Housed on the campus of the Americana World Community Center and adjacent to the Americana health center, the STS provides holistic, integrated, individualized care for this highly traumatized and resilient population.
Family Health Centers (FHC) provides interpreters for any patient who cannot communicate in English or who is deaf or hard of hearing at no cost to the patient. We also provide a number of translated forms and handouts in other languages. Let a staff member know if you need an interpreter or help reading a form. Language services are available to any patient at any of our locations.
FHC’s Refugee Health Program receives funding through the Kentucky Office for Refugees (KOR). Services are coordinated with Louisville’s local Refugee Resettlement Agencies: Kentucky Refugee Ministries (KRM) and Catholic Charities Migration & Refugee Services, Louisville Metro Department for Public Health & Wellness TB Clinic, Americana World Community Center, and other community partners and specialists. The Survivors of Torture Services is supported through a federal grant from the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement and a partnership with the University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work.
