Mission: Drawing on jewish traditions of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world), we offer free medical care for anyone in need, without regard to ethnicity, race or religion. We offer an atmosphere of respect, empowerment and partnership with our patients, and strive to assist them in attaining full health and well-being.
Programs: The jewish community free clinic (jcfc) is a non-profit free outpatient medical clinic, based on a family practice model, under the auspices of the sonoma county jewish community. It serves those low-income and homeless residents who cannot afford health insurance and provides drop-in care for minor medical illnesses only, free of charge. Volunteer staff, donated equipment and medications will be provided to those in need without regard to socio-economic resources, ethnic or racial background. The volunteers include medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, interpreters and administrative personnel. Our health care providers take a holistic approach, are multi-lingual, compassionate, non-judgmental and provide quality services in a friendly, accessible environment for the entire family. We aim to create an atmosphere of respect, education, empowerment and partnership with our patients. We strive to assist them in attaining full health. For those needing ongoing medical care, our staff will do our best to refer patients to the appropriate community health centers so that they may receive the best medical care available. The jcfc also serves as a training site for medical, nursing, and community health worker students, and welcomes volunteers from the entire community.
