We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for people with or without a medical background. Come help us out during clinic hours - checking patients in, keeping the clinic organized, and seeing patients. We also have volunteer opportunities in the office all week long.



Our free clinic runs on support from generous community members. Both financial and in-kind donations are incredibly helpful to help us keep serving our patients. We're a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.


We provide free medical care to the uninsured, impoverished residents of Buffalo, Kearney and Phelps counties. We have a few qualifying questions for our patients. If you know someone who meets our qualifiers and needs medical care, send them our way!
