Capital Campaign 


Remodel Project

The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington has been providing free, compassionate, high quality healthcare to uninsured residents since 1990, and, from our current space since 2002. We switched from a walk-in urgent care clinic in 2020 and now operate as a primary care home for our patients. We have over 300 dedicated volunteers, who with the support of our staff, provide over 3,000 patient visits every year.
