Family Medicine Cares USA
Helping those in need, at home and around the world.
Family Medicine Cares USA is designed to bring us together to help address this overwhelming need and to bring visibility to the caring nature and importance of family medicine.
Your Wish May Help
Each of the clinics that have received a Family Medicine Cares USA grant have made a significant difference in the lives of many. Collectively these clinics have impacted almost 5,000 patients and provide nearly $3 million in services. Each of the clinics listed below are making a significant impact in their community. Make sure to check out just one of those critical stories from The Founder's Clinic.
Why Free Clinics?
The AAFP Foundation will not directly start and maintain new clinics but is collaborating with a non-profit organization, Volunteers In Medicine (VIM). VIM has a tested model for developing sustainable, locally supported free clinics. Since the mid-1990s, VIM has helped establish 86 free clinics and all but two are still serving the needs of their communities. VIM is helping the AAFP Foundation identify strong potential clinic groups and will continue in its current role of providing expertise and guidance to developing clinic groups.
