All of our services are provided to our clients free-of-charge. Your donation will allow us to continue to realize our potential as your community supported free clinic. We rigorously screen our patients who receive services at the clinic to make sure they meet our eligibility criteria and do not have access to health care through traditional methods. Approximately 25 percent of our clients are Medicare patients - eligible to receive medication at the clinic when they qualify for our services.

The average cost of a patient visit at the clinic, including medication, is only $25. You can rest assured that we know how to stretch each and every dollar to provide the care that matters most to those who need it. The average yearly cost of health care and medication for each client at the clinic is $75. A family of four can receive their needed health care and medication for only $300 per year.

Please take a few moments to review the programs we offer. Please call Executive Director Kathie Brown at 304.233.3869 if you you have any question on need additional information.

Nurse Practitioner Clinics - All patients first see the Nurse Practitioner at the clinic for evaluation. Our Nurse Practitioners all have prescriptive authority and practice under a collaborative agreement with a local physician.

Physician Clinics - Local physicians volunteer at the clinic to see patients. We also have more than 125 area physicians who volunteer to see our patients in their offices and in the hospitals.

Specialty Clinics - Several local specialists provide clinic hours at our site for Endocrinology, Cardiac, Podiatry and other services.
