Millicent Buxton-Smith, Founder Dr.David Smith, and friend Bob Student in front of the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic in San Francisco.(AP Photo) The Free Clinic Cooperative is the safety net for newly forming and crisis Free Clinics. Approximately 40% of people in the US have no health insurance. When you add the masses of under insured, you have an alarming amount of people with a very real demand for Free Clinics and their services. We are the only technologically advanced country in the world without a universal healthcare system.

The Free Clinic Cooperative will strive to support and maintain the philosophy established close to 40 years ago: Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. It should be free at the point of delivery for all who need it. Your support is imperative so that we may be equipped with the necessary resources to reach out to Clinics in need and the communities they serve and benefit.
"The Free Clinics have proven their ability to reach alienated economic, racial, and philosophic minorities. They have advanced the goals of community medicine by seeking out patients in their own environment and by regarding the environment as an organism capable of being healed. They have provided an outlet for idealism and social frustration. And they have served as a conscience for the country. These are the true meanings of Love Needs Care."
