The St. Clare Health Mission is a program in which multidisciplinary volunteers provide free basic health care to those who would otherwise receive none. For nearly 20 years, our volunteers provide care to the poor and uninsured in our community. We have seen over 15,500 patients since our doors opened in 1993. Individuals who quality for care are not eligible for private, state or federal healthcare coverage programs, and fall at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines. Our organization is named for Clare of Assisi, a contemporary of St. Francis who renounced all her possessions – even giving away her shoes – as she devoted her live to the care of the poor. The term "health mission" describes not only the program, but also the motivation which guides it.
