The patients served are uninsured working people and their families along with the unemployed who do not qualify for any type of government assistance programs, such as Medicaid or Medicare, or have no access to any financial resources for payment for health care.
The clinic is the only free clinic within our service area (northwest side of Chicago). By caring for individuals, we also directly impact their families. Healthy families in the community enable people to keep their jobs, further their education, and improve their quality of life. Further, we enrich the community by creating opportunities for community outreach to volunteers that support the clinic.
