I volunteered for the first time at the Volunteer Health Corps of Baton Rouge today, and it was one of the best experiences I've gone through. All of the volunteers and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Everyone treated the patients with care as if they had known them for an extended period of time. I will definitely be back to volunteer for the Volunteer Health Corp of Baton Rouge next Tuesday!

VHC exceeded my expectations as a volunteer with their wonderful hospitality and care for our community. Baton Rouge needs more organizations like this to show those in need a helping hand.

Volunteer Health Corps of Baton Rouge is an amazing place to volunteer! My first volunteering experience with them was through my school. After my required shifts were completed I asked if I could come back and volunteer on my own. The staff was very excited at my request and they said they would be happy to have me back! It also seems that the clients that they serve are extremely grateful and excited for us to be there. I am very thankful that we have a nonprofit organization that is consistently able to deliver high-quality healthcare to a population that has been historically underserved here in my hometown. If you like working with knowledgeable medical professionals who genuinely care about their clients then you will like the VHC. If you are interested in improving your clinical acumen, then know that the staff will take the time to help you better your understanding of the medical profession including accurate diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and overall well care of their clients. I highly recommend volunteering a shift or two so you can form your own opinion. I promise, you won't be let down... and you never know, maybe I'll see you there!

I am a Registered Nurse and have volunteered for VHC several times since 2015. It is a wonderful asset for the uninsured population of our local community. Patients are able to be seen and followed by a physician for their chronic problems like diabetes and hypertension. Nearly everyone who is working there is a volunteer. There are doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, radiology personnel, social workers and medical students. Although everyone does a wonderful job with very limited assets, I hope that someone is able to help donate supplies and/or medicines this this great cause. Many of the people who go there work, but just don't make a lot of money and cannot afford health insurance and do not qualify for Medicaid. It is a great organization and helps many people in our community!!!

This is a great nonprofit foundation. They see patients efficiently and are really doing a great service to the community. This clinic provides an opportunity for healthcare workers to give back as well provide care to people who may not be able to receive care otherwise.
