Since the doors opened on July 3, 2001, the Lake Area Free Clinic has welcomed individuals and families who lack health insurance and whose income is below 200% of the federal poverty level. Many of these individuals work full-time, but are either not offered health insurance, or cannot afford the premiums.
Volunteers from all walks of life have stepped forth to plan, create and make the Free Clinic a caring and vital part of the Waukesha County community. The Free Clinic provides medical care and practical information aimed at prevention for hundreds of people who would otherwise go without. Due to increased awareness of the Free Clinic and rapidly rising need, the number of clients seeking care continues to grow.
The challenge to meet these increasing needs has been successful in the past by the generous contributions of people in the Oconomowoc Wisconsin community. It is indeed gratifying to live where people care about others and are active in improving the quality of life.
We’ve all seen the headlines and read the stories about health care failures. While this news affects many of us individually, it has a profound effect on the neediest in our community – and theLake Area Free Clinic.
Open Hearts – Open Doors The hope is that the Free Clinic’s doors will always remain open to those that need its vital medical services. Would you please consider a donation to the Lake Area Free Clinic? With your help, more individuals in our Southeastern Wisconsin community can be offered the dignity of getting their family’s basic health care needs met.

“I have the deepest respect for the professionals who volunteer at the clinic. I’m a non-medical volunteer, but I’m happy to help in a small way.”
