Asian Health Services Asian Health Services (AHS) is a Federally Qualified Health Center whose mission is to address the unmet health care needs of the underserved in Oakland, California. Formed in 1974 as a “one room” clinic, AHS today offers a continuum of health services, including primary, perinatal, and geriatric care, as well as dental and mental health services. The Asian Health Services (AHS) project was the rehabilitation of a three-story, 15,000 square-foot restaurant building into a community health center for primarily low-income Asian and Pacific Islanders. Located in the heart of Oakland’s Chinatown, the new health center has 20 exam rooms and provides approximately 39,000 visits to nearly 10,000 individual patients annually. The new health center increased AHS’ capacity by more than 30 percent to address the growing demand for comprehensive primary care services.

The vision of the Ed Roberts Campus started nearly a decade ago among seven non-profit organizations serving the Bay Area. The goal was to create a center devoted to advancing the rights of those with disabilities by providing services to enable them to live independently and without discrimination. Their efforts resulted in the creation of an 80,000 sq. ft. office complex with lots of common areas for community members to enjoy many amenities such as free Wi-Fi. The project is also one of the first low-income targeted population NMTC deals in the country, meeting the requirements of the program by hiring and employing individuals that are considered low-income employees. Designed to meet LEED-Gold specifications, the project incorporates a range of sustainable design strategies to serve the diverse needs of the occupants as well as the larger environment. As part of the construction process a neighboring BART transit station was revitalized, which connects directly to the project through the basement level.
