Key Programs Offered: 

DotHouse Health (Formerly Dorchester House) is a federally qualified health center located in the Fields Corner neighborhood of Dorchester. 127 years ago, our founders had a brilliant vision. They understood that a person’s well-being wasn't just about one facet of a person’s life, but it was about the well-being of the whole person. It’s about taking care of the whole person across their life span. We continue to follow this vision by not only offering healthcare but, also community and social services to the people of Dorchester. We offer our 23,000 patients extensive case management, financial and legal services as well as a number of community programs. By connecting our patients with comprehensive primary care, social services and internal programs – all under one roof – we support the overall good health of our patients and build a stronger, healthier community.
