OUR NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER

Virginia’s free and charitable clinics offer clinical and non-clinical volunteers an opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of people in their community. We have an immediate need for healthcare providers to volunteer to help our clinics provide essential care to those who would otherwise go without.

“We could not do the work that we do without our volunteers. That includes the doctors, nurses, and dentists, and also the lay people who come in and register patients, run the front desk, and schedule people.” – Sally Graham, Nurse Practitioner, Clinic Executive

Types of volunteers that work with free clinics:

  • Licensed primary- and specialty-care healthcare practitioners
  • Nurses and nurse assistants
  • Dental professionals
  • Mental health experts
  • Interpreters
  • Administrative and clerical folks who ensure seamless care
  • And more!

 

“Free clinics are staff-led, volunteer-driven, with 14 volunteers for every one paid staff member.”
– Rebecca Butler, Director of Communications, Marketing & Development Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics

VOLUNTEERS ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF FREE CLINICS

Across Virginia, free clinics, with the help of both clinical-and non-clinical volunteers, provide equitable access to quality health care and do so with compassion, dignity, and respect.

Kathy, Nurse Practitioner, CrossOver Healthcare Ministry
“A good day is when I’m able to help a patient become a partner in their own healthcare. They make the difference. The key is being honest. I tell them that I’m here for them, but there are things they need to do to help themselves so I can help them.”

Larry Newark, Spanish Interpreter, CrossOver Healthcare Ministry
“I’m retired from commercial banking, and this is a lot more fun and rewarding in a very different way. A good day here is a busy one, and all the days are busy. The clients are wonderful people. They are so appreciative of the help we can offer them.”

Chelsea Jackson, CNA and VCU Student, CrossOver Healthcare Ministries
“The staff is so engaging and supportive, and they’ve offered to help me as far as my future goes. I’d like to be a Physician’s Assistant. I learn something new every time I’m here.”
