I met a gentleman who moved to St Pete from Michigan after losing his factory job and medical benefits. He is diabetic and was not able to afford medical care. I referred him to SP Free Clinic and he is now stable and managing his diabetes.
The Free Clinic is an organization that does incredible work for the people who need it the most. Thank you to all the staff and volunteers for making such a major difference in our community!
The St. Petersburg Free Clinic delivers a wide range of services to the community from healthcare to housing to a food bank that serves thousands of meals. it is an amazing organization.
The St. Petersburg Free Clinic has been providing assistance to the St. Petersburg Community for over 40 years. I have personally volunteered there over the years since 1976. The St. Petersburg Free Clinic is dedicated to closing the hunger gap and helping men, women and families that are in need of food, medical care, shelter and more. The clinic has a strong foundation, broad community support and strong leadership. The food bank is being expanded in a new location and will be able to accept more fresh and perishable foods and serve more people. The medical clinic will be able to expand into the space vacated by the current food bank and there is a brand new women's residence facility that doubles the number of women that can be served. The other agencies under the clinic's umbrella are We Help which provides emergency aid to families and the men's shelter, Beacon House.
A wonderful non-profit serving a client base that could many times fail to get much needed assistance.
St Petersburg Free Clinic does so much for the community from providing over 3mm pounds of food to community partners to providing health/dental care to hundreds of residents in need. Their commitment to our community is unparalleled and thousands of Pinellas residents are lucky to have such a stable, strong non-profit available to them.
I have used St Petersburg Free Clinic- Health services on a number of occasions and wow what a great experience; From Intake to triage to Doctors and Therapists> All are accommodating, understanding and so nice. This organization is a well oil machine. Other organizations, especially our government, could learn from the St Petersburg Free Clinic organization on how to treat people effectively and efficiently and kindly at minimal cost. I thank all; employees, volunteers and donors, one being a part of this wonderful organization
St. Pete Free Clinic has services that reach farther than most are aware. Its name is deceiving - in addition to free medical care, the Clinic is one of the largest providers of food to needy in the area. The Clinic also offers several housing programs for those in need. The Clinic runs entirely on donations and grants with an amazing staff and crew of volunteers.
St. Petersburg Free Clinic offers help and hope to neighbors in need throughout the community. The agency offers a wide range of programs to help people who are struggling with basic needs including hunger, medical, dental, housing, transportation, clothing, utilities and referrals.
As a volunteer, it is shocking and sad to see hundreds of people coming in each week for something as simple as a few bags of groceries yet it is a relief to know they have a place like St. Petersburg Free Clinic to go to get assistance.
Each year, thousands of people in our community come to St. Petersburg Free Clinic for assistance with basic needs including food, shelter, heath care, referrals and other basic services. As a weekly volunteer, I see people from all walks of life receive a helping hand from one of the Clinic's programs when they have no where else to turn. One gentleman in his nineties wrote, " Thank you for helping with my electric bill. I have terminal cancer and just want to stay warm. Your kindness and financial support with help me live out my last days in comfort." This is just one example of how a Clinic service can make life more bearable for a neighbor in need. And as a donor, I appreciate that donations are well spent to ensure that 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to client programs and services.
The Free Clinic's We Help program has assisted families, individuals and children (Pack A Sack) for many years with grace and compassion. Services range from food, identification, help with utility bills, and personal care items. It makes a true difference in the lives of the people who rely on it's services.
A very well-run group that helps those in need of food, shelter, and healthcare. Ninety Three cents of every dollar goes directly to program services and over 4,800 people volunteer each year to lift their neighbors with help and hope. The hard-working, compassionate staff and volunteers of The St. Petersburg Free Clinic are changing the lives of so many in our community.
"Providing food, shelter and health care" is not just a slogan at the St. Petersburg Free Clinic. It is an organization-wide commitment that is carried out daily with respect for each and every client they serve and accountability to the organization's donors and volunteers.
St. Petersburg Free Clinic provides the basic needs for our neighbors who are suffering financial difficulties. I have met many of the men and women who are back on their feet because of the assistance they received. This is the best investment I can make into our community and I know it's making a difference.
I am proud to volunteer my time with such a great organization! The St Pete Free Clinic makes a big impact within our community providing food, health care and shelter to those in need. I work in the We Help food pantry which runs on volunteers and donations. We Help distributed over 2.5 million pounds of food last year. This is the most EFFICIENT organization that truly utilizes every resource and stretches donations to the fullest in order to help as many people as possible. Please consider donating your time, money or resources to help the needy in Pinellas County.
I have been a volunteer for the St. Petersburg Free Clinic for over 8 years, doing intake for the Medical Clinic. I am constantly impressed by the quality of care given to our patients both by paid staff members and by the volunteer doctors and nurses. Each patient is treated with concern and compassion and I believe every one feels better emotionally as well as physically when they leave the clinic. Many times, after receiving medical care, a person will get food or assistance from "We Help" which shares a waiting room. It is one stop shopping which is so necessary when a bus ride was necessary to get there. My church collects food each week and I am able to deliver this to the Food Bank when I report to my "job" each week. I always feel that our donation is appreciated. So many recipients have told me that they are so thankful for the Free Clinic. Without it, they don't know where they would go for help during their hard times. I am proud to be associated with such a fine organization.
The St Petersburg Free Clinic has 5 major programs providing basic needs: food, shelter and medical care. It provides these services very efficiently, but also treating each client with the greatest dignity. Donated funds are the lifeblood of the organization. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make a difference, one person at a time.
The St. Petersburg Free Clinic focuses on meeting basic needs -- food, shelter and medical care. In my experience, The Free Clinic is a VERY good steward of its resources. Programs include a Food Bank serving the Clinic's programs and 50 other agencies, We Help (food pantry and other immediate assistance and referrals), the Free Clinic (ambulatory care and referrals for those who do not qualify for any other programs), Beacon House (men's shelter and transitional residence) and the Women's Residence (transitional housing and program for single women). Volunteers provide invaluable assistance in delivering all of the services of The Free Clinic. The staff is lean and effective. Community financial support has made each service possible for the many people in need. I would highly recommend support of this organization.
