As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Free Clinic provides quality medical care to uninsured adults on the Gulf Coast. It is the only one in existence in Gulfport. Services are provided throughout the month. The Free Clinic is open on every Wednesday Morning from 8-12noon and the 4th Wednesday afternoon from 1pm to 4 pm and on the 3rd Thursday from 9 am to 12 noon.
We are looking for skilled and less skilled volunteers. We are in need of Intake Workers, one per clinic. An Intake Worker sits with the patients to review their basic non-medical information. This person also verifies the patient's income and ID.
All volunteers are asked to go through orientation.
