Free & Charitable Clinics

Free and Charitable Clinics use a volunteer/staff model to provide a range of medical, dental, pharmacy, vision, and/or behavioral health services to low-income individuals at no cost or at a small fee.  

Who is eligible for free and charitable clinics?  

Each service may have different eligibility requirements. However, all clinics restrict eligibility to individuals who are uninsured, underinsured, and/or have limited or no access to primary, specialty, or prescription healthcare. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.  

How can I apply?  

Application procedures and walk-in availability will vary depending on the clinic. It is advised to call the clinic closest to you before arriving.
