The Free Clinic has grown from a single walk-in medical facility to a multi-service, multi-site agency dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty. Providing food, shelter and health care to those in need, we are dedicated to giving help and hope to families and individuals. With off-site transitional housing for over 250 men, women and families, a Food Bank that distributes 4.7 million pounds of food to the hungry, and a Health Center dedicated to treating the uninsured, the Free Clinic is committed to providing quality care to those who typically fall through the cracks of existing systems and services. The Free Clinic is comprised of eight programs, including a Health Center, Dental Clinic, Health Education Program, Food Bank, We Help Services, Beacon House (homeless men's transitional program), The Virginia and David Baldwin Women's Residence (homeless women's transitional program) and Family Residence (homeless transitional program). Primary beneficiaries of the Free Clinic's programs are families and individuals in Pinellas County – specifically a combination of low-income and working-poor. Through our services, we restore dignity, promote self-sufficiency, and provide hope.
