WHO WE ARE
Salaam Community Wellness Center is a unique, innovative, integrative health and wellness center established in 2020 in response to the devastating effects that COVID-19 had on black and brown communities on Chicago's South Side. The center provides the best of western and non-western medicine to low-income communities regardless as to their income or insurance status. We provide conventional medical care in a culturally-responsive manner along with non-western modalities which include deep breathing, meditation, yoga, massage therapy, acupuncture, music therapy and more.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
The cost of each patient visit is approximately $250. On average we only receive between $50 - $80 for each visit from self-pay and insured patients. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROVIDE QUALITY HEALTHCARE REGARDLESS AS TO THE COST.
