Offering Hope, Health and Dignity
The Lake Area Free Clinic welcomes individuals and families who lack health insurance and the ability to pay for health care. Clinic patients receive the medical attention and practical information they need to maintain their health in a friendly and caring atmosphere. Thousands of people in our community are afforded the dignity of getting their basic health care needs met because of the time commitment of our staff and volunteers, services provided by local providers, and generous contributions from private individuals and organizations alike.
A Valuable Community Resource, the Lake Area Free Clinic is:
A safety net for thousands who would otherwise go without vital health care.
A life-changing volunteer experience for hundreds who seek to help their neighbors in need.
The essence of what living in a socially responsible community means.
