Organization: The Center Clinic

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: The Center Clinic is a non-profit health care clinic located in Dodge Center, Minnesota. We are committed to providing low-income, uninsured and underinsured women, teens and their partners with quality physical and mental care, as well as counseling and education services. As we continue to grow and expand, more services will become available. We believe that access to basic physical and mental health care and education are essential for the prevention of unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, chemical and substance abuse, violence, poor decision-making and other high-risk activities. These health promotion and educational activities are needed to continue building a strong community in Dodge Center and the surrounding area. The Center Clinic offers a unique service to the Dodge County community. We are a creative solution to the gap in health care needs within Dodge County.

Site Information
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'s  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. could be an interesting first step.

The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
