Description

California CareForce's mission is to provide free medical, dental, and vision services to those in need at 3-day clinics across the state. Since 2011, we have provided critical care worth $11 million to over 27,000 patients thanks to 12,000 professional and general volunteers. 97% of our patients are uninsured or under-insured and among the most vulnerable populations in California. We do not have any restrictions on who can receive our services based on insurance, income, employment, residency, or immigration status because our volunteers believe that everyone deserves basic healthcare.


YOU can help us serve 1,500-2,000 underserved individuals and families at our 2018 Coachella Valley Clinic at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio, CA from March 23-25. Both professional and general volunteers will be needed in a wide variety of capacities (listed below). Don't miss this opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of the underserved by relieving pain, preventing infections, helping people see clearly again, and inspiring hope. Services provided will include:


Medical = blood pressure screening, glucose testing, general check-ups, and physicals

Dental = panoramic x-rays, cleanings, fillings and extractions

Vision = eye health checks, vision exams, and free custom eyeglasses made on-site

Hearing = hearing exams, earwax removal, and hearing aids


Volunteers must serve for at least 1 full day of the clinic. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. A free California CareForce t-shirt will also be provided.
