Caridad is an extraordinary organization that is so much more than the largest provider of healthcare services to the uninsured and underinsured in Palm Beach County. It fills a critical need in our community and offers a variety of outreach programs that support healthy family growth, emergency aid for people in crisis situations, after-school help for at-risk students, and a generally improved life for those in need. It is an amazing and vital place.

I came to Caridad Center when I was a kid. my parents migrated to the US and Caridad Center was a place my mom sought healthcare and it was given to her.
I am now back myself, not to seek care for myself but as an employee.
It is great to be part of this Clinic that has given so much not only to my family when we needed, but to many other families in similar conditions to mine and worse.

Caridad Center's story is AMAZING!!! It is the largest free clinic in Florida that provides education, health, and social services to those who cannot access them anywhere else. Primarily known for its primary and specialty clinic, Caridad's After School Program for 1st and 2nd graders who are disadvantaged economically and culturally, help the children get a head start in school. They mostly come from families where parents are not able to help them with homework assignments because they have limited English or schooling themselves. Their Social Services Program provides hunger relief, prevents homelessness, and supports excellent students with college scholarships. The free Health Clinic has 18 different specialties in medical and free Dental services are unmatched in the community. It has a Vision Clinic with 9 volunteer ophthalmologists and a community network of vision specialists who provide surgeries. Caridad also has a Prevention, Education, and Training Program that identifies people with chronic conditions they don't know they have and get them into treatment early to prevent complications, reduce emergency room visits, and preventable hospitalizations. If you live in Palm Beach County and don't know about this nonprofit organization, you are missing out on many opportunities - to donate, to volunteer, to access services.

This is how I expressed Caridad’s role at a recent luncheon:

Here is what I truly love about Caridad.

For every dollar we raise from private individuals like yourselves, we raise four more from foundations and agencies.

We also have over 400 doctors who volunteer their services for free and are passionate about it.

We have a free-standing building and so we pay no rent.

We are not subject to two of the more expensive costs of providing health care.

Last year we had over 26,000 patient visits for comprehensive health, dental and vision care.

Caridad Center offers many levels of care that give answers, hope and solutions. They have a medical, dental, vision, mental health, social services, after school program, chronic disease management, prevention and education. Caridad is a charity a donor can be proud to be a part of. It is a place that on any given day you can see where your dollars are going. You can follow the cases and see the results. Caridad is the charity that makes a difference for so many and at the same time saves our taxpayers money annually.

Caridad Center is one of the most outstanding non-profits in Florida! They provide medical and dental care to people who would not otherwise be able to receive treatment and would suffer. The doctors and dentists that volunteer their time at Caridad are incredible human beings!
