About Healing California

Location:

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide free medical, dental, and vision care to those in need in California.

Description

Almost 1 in 10 Californians still lack any form of medical insurance. An even greater number do not receive ongoing dental or vision care due to financial barriers or lack of access to care. Dental, medical and vision problems, when left untreated, can often become sources of great pain and anxiety for underprivileged families. Preventable dental disease can lead to expensive emergency room visits, putting stress on an already taxed public healthcare system. Healing California aims to bridge the gaps in access to basic care felt by underserved communities.

We deliver free high-quality dental and vision care to those most in need at pop-up clinics across California. Our licensed medical professionals volunteer their time and put patients on the pathway to better health.

Our Dental Services
We set up fully equipped dental field stations, where our patients receive complete dental exams and treatment from our volunteer Dentists, Oral Surgeons, Hygienists and other medical professionals.

Our Vision Services
We set up complete vision exam stations and a fully equipped prescription lens lab. Our volunteer Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, and Vision Technicians, provide full-eye exams and fabricate free, custom prescription eyeglasses on-site, usually within an hour.

Since 2018, Healing California's volunteer providers have helped over 1,750 Californians get access to care, delivering over $700,000 worth of services to their communities.
