California CareForce promotes the health and well-being of those in need through volunteer supported, no-cost healthcare clinics across California.
Even after the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, 1 in 10 Americans remain without health insurance. An even greater number report going years without seeing a dental or vision professional because they just cannot afford it. California CareForce is a group of medical professionals, community leaders, and community members who provide free medical, dental and vision care to those in need at temporary clinics across California. Our volunteers believe that everyone, regardless of their background, deserves access to healthcare. As such, we make no restrictions based on income, employment, or immigration status. We do not require insurance or ID to serve patients and all services are provided at no cost.
Since 2011, over 17,000 volunteers have provided health services to over 35,600 individuals, delivering $15.1M worth of care, through our clinics.
California CareForce has held clinics in Oakland, Sacramento, the Coachella Valley, Butte County, Gold Country and the Greater Los Angeles area.
