About Us

Founded in 1999, Rhode Island Free Clinic's mission is to provide free, comprehensive medical care and preventive health services to adults who have no health insurance and cannot afford those services; and, to serve as an educational training site for health care professionals.

“Rhode Island Free Clinic is among the premier free clinics in our nation thanks to strategic partnerships with local business leaders and healthcare volunteers. As a statewide resource providing healthcare for uninsured, low-income adults, and workforce training for healthcare students, Rhode Island Free Clinic is an effective and powerful model and inspiration for other free clinics across our country. It is an incubator of great ideas, doing ground-breaking work.” CEO, National Association of Free & Charitable Clinic, 2019

In 2019 the Clinic provided nearly 11,000 patient visits through an active statewide corps of over 700 volunteers throughout Rhode Island (medical and support professionals along with academic, medical, and community partners, a lean professional staff of 8, and 8 AmeriCorps VISTA members). Services and training are provided at the Clinic's state-of the-art facility in Providence. With an annual cash budget of $1.3 million raised entirely by individuals, foundations, and corporations, the Clinic leveraged an additional $6.2 million of in-kind medical services, supplies, and support for uninsured, low-income adults.
