Even after the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, 1 in 10 Americans remain without health insurance. An even greater number report going years without seeing a dental or vision professional because they just cannot afford it. California CareForce is a group of medical professionals, community leaders, and engaged citizens who provide free medical, dental and vision care to those in need at 2 or 3-day, temporary clinics across California. Our volunteers believe that everyone, regardless of their background, deserves access to healthcare. As such, we have no restrictions on who receives our services based on income, employment, age, family size, or immigration status. We do not require insurance or ID to serve patients and all services are provided at absolutely no cost to our patients.
Since 2011, over 17,500 volunteers have provided health services to over 36,500 individuals, delivering $15,400,000.00 worth of care, through our clinics.
California CareForce has held clinics in Oakland, Sacramento, the Coachella Valley, Gold Country and the Greater Los Angeles area.
