We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for people with or without a medical background.
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.
