House Within A Match Coalition is a cultural non-profit
organization with a mission to promote the well being
and health of all people in our multi-ethnic community
through the provision of education, services and advocacy
which are founded in respect for language, culture
and health equity.
Healthy House was originally established to address
the cultural clash between Hmong Shamanism and the
Western Medical establishment, so poignantly chronicled
in The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne
Fadiman. It is internationally known for its Partners
in Healing Program which brings Hmong shamans together
with Western healthcare providers to collaborate and
ensure optimal outcomes for Hmong patients.
Our Language Bank provides professional healthcare
interpreters, proficient in 12 languages, to healthcare
facilities throughout the Central Valley of California.
Translation services are also available as needed.
Our grant-based programs address health disparities,
striving to improve access and health equity, in the
under-represented cultural groups in Merced County,
one of the most ethnically diverse counties in the
entire country. Healthy House has been providing these
community-based services since 1998.
