Imagine living every day with the fear of getting sick of no longer being able to work to support yourself or your family. For many of our low-income, uninsured neighbors here in Arlington, this is reality. At Arlington Free Clinic (AFC), we care for the whole person. Volunteer providers treat patients for every condition from chronic diabetes to cancer, while mental health counselors help them cope with the stresses of serious illness and poverty. New wellness programs and increased focus on preventive care help our patients live healthier lives. And, for the first time since the Clinic opened, visits to the dentist allow our patients to go out into the world with a confident smile. Since 1994, Arlington Free Clinic has been committed to providing exemplary health care for Arlingtonians in need, serving about 1,600 patients each year. Access to health care makes such a critical difference in the lives of individuals and families giving them peace of mind and economic security and we continue to work every day toward a healthier Arlington.
