Starting a Free Clinic
Would you like to make a meaningful and lasting contribution to the health of your community?
Starting a Free Clinic is a rewarding and community-strengthening experience. Though each Free Clinic is different than the next, the common thread is that Free Clinics are a response to the needs present within a community and they are supported by the generosity and resources available within that community. In order to start a Free Clinic in your community, you will need to better understand both the need and the resources available. Section 2 of the Washington Free Clinic Handbook outlines the necessary steps to assess the needs of your community, make important community connections, navigate the process of starting a non-profit and ultimately launch a Free Clinic to serve those in need.
