Promoting Healthier and Hope-Filled Families
The mission of The Caring Place Clinic is to compassionately promote the health and well-being of the underserved through accessible quality healthcare.
Our team of medical professionals are proud to help our patients achieve and maintain good health. It is our goal to promote a healthier future by offering free healthcare. Each of our physicians have practices of their own and volunteer at THE clinic.
GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH
Patients give a suggested donation of $25 for each sick-visit and $35 to see a specialist, dentist, optometrist. Your donation will help more families receive the health care they need. Services are free but labs and many medical supplies are not free to the clinic.
