Program Description


“Many people do not realize that there are approximately 1,400 Free and Charitable Clinics and Charitable Pharmacies throughout the nation who since the 1960s have been filling in the gap for those who ‘fall through the cracks’ in our current health care system.”

“Free and charitable clinics are nonprofit healthcare organizations that provide medical, dental, pharmaceutical, and/or behavioral health services to individuals who may not have access to healthcare due to financial constraints or other barriers. These clinics typically serve low-income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals and families.”

Free healthcare can be received at
