I went to this free clinic because I have asthma and could not afford to see a regular doctor, let alone get my inhalers. The people at SRCC are very friendly and very helpful. I had a thorough examination, received labs, and got my meds all for free. And they treated me with respect the entire time. I didn't feel like a "charity" case. If it had not have been for SRCC, I am positive that I would have become too sick to work again. SRCC gave me back my health and saved my job. They do much more than just provide health care. What a great bunch of people!

I am so appreciative of Snake River Clinic. I have no insurance, and needed medical care. I hadn't seen a doctor for regular care in five years, and had exactly two ER visits during that period of time.

The staff at SRCC are caring and kind. They are volunteers with hearts of gold, and I never felt like they talked down to me or had something they would rather be doing. They listen - all of them do - and they allow me to participate in my own care. I am very grateful for their help.

I try to give a donation whenever I can because I know that each dollar I can give is multiplied and comes back to everyone who uses this clinic.

Thank you SRCC and everyone who volunteers.

I’m a volunteer and the gratification I get, as people get much needed medical help they cannot afford, is indescribable. These patients are so appreciative.

Charlotte Ash, Executive Director clearly has 1 goal and mission....to serve those who need assistance! The SRCC staff follow her example and provide top notch care to those in the LC Valley and surrounding areas. They are continuously building partnerships with outside agencies to help further their mission, and stretch their dollars. Their recent move to a bigger location will most certainly allow them to provide even more assistance to those in need. This is an awesome group ofvolunteers, providing great services to a large group of people!

The Snake River Community Clinic (SRCC) will be starting its 10th year October 2009. It has filled the gap of health care for uninsured, medically needy with one paid staff member (their director) and an entirely VOLUNTEER health care provider staff, nursing staff, pharmacy staff, phlebotomy staff, and clerical staff. Over 400 medical, nursing, phlebotomy, pharmacy, and public health students from area colleges and universities have gained valuable experience at SRCC. It serves an area nearly 16,000 square miles in size, including all homeless, victims of domestic violence, and uninsured mental health patients. A free medical visit, $20 single tooth extraction, free labs & x-rays, dedicated volunteers, and enthusiastic community support make SRCC a free clinic for the uninsured of which we are very proud! It is a member of the Free Clinics of the Western Region, National Association of Free Clinics, the Nez Perce County Mental Health Court team, and works on the Advisory Board for the local Salvation Army. Collaboration and quality care are SRCC's secrets to providing years of care for thousands of uninsured. It receives no government funding!
