**HEALING CALIFORNIA IS FOLLOWING ALL LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL GUIDELINES AND RESTRICTIONS ISSUED IN RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OUTBREAK. CURRENTLY WE HAVE SUSPENDED CLINIC ACTIVITY UNTIL THE END OF APRIL, 2020. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND MAY BE EXTENDED BEYOND THIS POINT. STAY UP TO DATE ON ANY CLINIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AT HEALINGCA.ORG/CLINICS** Our mission is to provide free medical, dental, and vision care to those in need in California.
Healing California seeks to increase the health status of individuals and Veterans by providing low-barrier, comprehensive dental and vision services at no cost to patients. Upon receiving Healing California’s services, patients are on a path to better health and have expressed their confidence to pursue gainful employment and personal stability.
We recruit licensed, professional volunteers to provide dental and vision care at no charge to Veterans and those in need at pop-up Community Health Clinics and Veteran Stand Downs throughout the state.
We set-up fully equipped dental field stations, where our patients receive complete dental exams and treatment from licensed, volunteer Dentists, Oral Surgeons, Hygienists, and other dental professionals.
We set-up complete vision exam stations and a fully equipped prescription lens lab at our clinics. Volunteer optometrists, ophthalmologists, opticians, and vision technicians provide full-eye exams and fabricate custom prescription eyeglasses on-site, at no charge to patients (usually within an hour or so of their exams).
Our 20 dental chairs and 5 vision lanes enable us to serve up to 150 dental patients and 125 vision patients per day.
