Mission: The National Association of Free Clinics provides research, education and resources to promote strengthen and advocate for member organizations and the communities they serve.
Programs: C. A. R. E. Clinics establish and maintain services that support and benefit the work of the members in their efforts to provide health care to the uninsured and underinsured.
donated services provide free healthcare for the underinsured. The donated services are provided by doctors, nurses,and other medical professionals. Additionally, the organization receives donated professional services. There were 403 volunteers throughout the year that donated their time for these free health clinics.
I loved volunteering with the NAFC during the Dallas C.A.R.E. Clinic. I had the opportunity to work with people who had not been to a doctor in 3 years and really needed help. I felt as if I was giving back to my community and helping make the world a little better. I hope they come back soon.
Working with the NAFC and its Board and its members is very rewarding. These individuals are supremely dedicated to serving the medically underserved in the country. A nonprofit that cares about its clients is one that I enjoy working with every day.
The time I spent with the NAFC was life changing. Giving back to those in need touched my heart and showed me that even in America we need health care for many who fall through the cracks. I felt like I was an important piece of the puzzle. I felt like I mattered. I will be joining the NAFC again!
