The mission of St. John Bosco Clinic is to serve the basic primary medical needs of the uninsured and underserved children and adults in Miami-Dade County without regard to the person's race, age, gender, ethnicity or relicious affiliation, in the manner of Jesus, who healed. Our vision is to be an enduring presence providing care in Miami-Dade County as long as there are underserved children and adults without access to health care. As a member of the Florida Association of Free & Charitable Clinics and the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics we are committed to serve as a safety net for those who are unable to access other community health services.
At St. John Bosco Clinic those we serve have different life stories, faces and nationalities. They are the young, old, working poor and the unemployed, but they share one very similar need; the need for healthcare and difficulty meeting that need for themselves and their families.
For over 27 years, with the support of our volunteer physicians and support staff, the St. John Bosco Clinic has been meeting the medical needs of those who come to our doors. We are solely funded through the generosity of our community partners, and philanthropic individuals, corporations and foundations that recognize the great need in our community and the true difference their support can make.
Our goals are to:
Reduce inappropriate use of emergency rooms;
Develop and implement programs that identify, prevent and treat the most prevalent diseases in our community;
Serve as a navigator to assist patients in accessing community services;and
Deliver health education through culturally relevant and linguistically appropriate programs.
