Open weekdays, it utilizes a staff of physicians and nurse practitioners, many of whom volunteer their time, in the areas of: gynecology, pediatrics, internal medicine, podiatry, physical therapy, health coaching, and nutrition.

The Avalon Village is a sustainable eco-village that is currently being built to transform one of the city’s most blighted blocks into a safe, functional, and beautiful space for the entire community. The inspiration behind this transformative project is 2 year-old Jakobi RA, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in 2007.
Our first installation, Jakobi RA Park, serves as a gathering place for celebrations, community service projects, activities and events throughout the year. Adjacent to Jakobi RA park is The Homework House, a renovated brick house where children will receive healthy meals and help with their homework. The house will also feature a computer lab and STEM lab, a kitchen, laundry and shower facilities, a recording studio, and comfortable places to study and learn. Outside, there will be tennis, volleyball and basketball courts and seating.
We’re hosting a FREE health fair at SAY Clinic on August 24 to promote health care and community unity in Highland Park.
