Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to provide culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate access to health care for Rhode Island residents who are uninsured and/or who cannot afford the cost of healthcare.
Clínica Esperanza/Hope Clinic is a volunteer-run organization. Our volunteer group includes medical students, clinicians (MDs, RNs, RNPs and PAs, pharmacy students), and regular citizens of Rhode Island who provide free health care to the uninsured.
We help patients from all over the world at Clínica Esperanza/Hope Clinic. 85% of our patients do not speak English as their first language. Our patients are from Afghanistan and Syria, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Mali and Liberia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and South America, Haiti and the Dominican Republic and Providence, and our group of volunteers is just as diverse.
In addition to providing health care, we offer several educational programs at our facility that aim to improve health literacy, teach patients chronic disease self-management skills, and facilitate emergency room diversion for non-urgent illnesses for the population that CEHC serves.
