Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve health outcomes in a medically under-served community by offering health screening and basic medical services at no cost to low-income uninsured adults. Priority is given to those living in the surrounding inner N/NE neighborhoods.

Description

Pastor Mary Overstreet long envisioned a free health clinic in her Northeast Portland neighborhood, where many people go without health insurance, needed medical care and medications. Her relief work after Hurricane Katrina brought her together with Dr. Jill Ginsberg, and they made the dream a reality. Now volunteer staff and medical providers welcome patients one evening a week, offering free health care and medications to neighborhood residents in need.
