Nogales, Arizona

Our Story

Forty years ago, seven cerebral palsy children and their mothers gathered in a home in Nogales, Sonora. St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic was born. Click on the links below to learn more about the beginning of St. Andrew’s Children's Clinic from those who were there. Now, the volunteer professional health care staff numbers 45-50; the staff sees approximately 225-250 children the first Thursday of each month, except July, at St. Andrew's Children’s Clinic housed in St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Nogales, Arizona.

Please note!

It is with much sadness that we inform you of the passing of our former Executive Director.  The Reverand Ed Gustafson passed away on June 29, 2016.  Father Ed was our first Executive Director and was responsible for establishing the Clinic as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, setting up our first Board of Directors and beginning our grant-writing process.  We are grateful for his guidance in our early years.
