California CareForce promotes the health and well-being of those in need through volunteer supported, no-cost healthcare clinics across California.

Since 2011, more than 15,000 volunteers have provided free healthcare services to more than 32,400 individuals, delivering $14 million 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.

45 able-bodied general volunteers are needed for help with set up, the two days prior to the clinic (typically a Wednesday and Thursday). 175 general volunteers are utilized each clinic day. 45 general volunteers are also needed on the last day of the clinic to assist with take-down in the afternoon. A healthcare background is not required. We simply ask that general volunteers be friendly, patient and helpful. General volunteers are used in a variety of clinic roles, including:

  • Volunteer Check-in & out*

  • Escorting patients to and from clinic sections
  • Patient Registration
  • Assisting in Patient Triage
  • Assisting in various areas of the dental section - X-ray, Sterilization (must be blood borne pathogen trained/certified), Dental Supply Buffet, "Bucket Brigade," Dental Check-out
  • Assisting in the Vision Section - helping patients select frames for their glasses, making glasses in the Vision Lab, check patients out
  • Translators (also needed on the afternoon of the day before the clinic)
  • Assisting with lunch*
  • Various other jobs

*The minimum age requirement for most General Volunteer roles is 18. Bullet points with * can be 15 years of age or older with a parent or guardian on-site during volunteer service.

Mission Statement

California CareForce promotes the health and well-being of those in need through volunteer supported, no-cost healthcare clinics across California.

Description

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 community members who provide free medical, dental and vision care to those in need at temporary clinics across California. Our volunteers believe that everyone, regardless of their background, deserves access to healthcare. As such, we make no restrictions based on income, employment, or immigration status. We do not require insurance or ID to serve patients and all services are provided at no cost.

Since 2011, over 17,000 volunteers have provided health services to over 35,600 individuals, delivering $15.1M worth of care, through our clinics.

California CareForce has held clinics in Oakland, Sacramento, the Coachella Valley, Butte County, Gold Country and the Greater Los Angeles area.
