Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
NHC provides and advocates for quality health services for those who do not have adequate resources to access care.
Neighborhood Health Clinics is a vital community nonprofit organization with a 13-year history of meeting the health care needs of our low-income neighbors. Neighborhood Health Clinics truly epitomizes the term "community-based." From weekly medical and dental clinics to a prenatal program to counseling services to immunizations for youth, NHC provides for the health care needs of the uninsured. Without Neighborhood Health Clinics, the working poor would have few options for urgent health care.Yet what is truly unique about Neighborhood Health Clinics is that it provides almost all of these services solely with the help of volunteers. Over 400 dedicated people donate their time to help more than 5,300 people each year, keeping NHC's overhead at a remarkable 12%.
