The Clinic is funded by donation, with no federal funding.
The Clinic operates on a 2021-22 fiscal year budget of $1.64 million, providing millions of dollars worth of care annually for our neighbors in need. This is care that those of low incomes would not receive otherwise, short of using hospital emergency rooms. All Clinic operations rely on community donations.
During difficult economic times, the Clinic has been the health safety net for hundreds of new patients who have struggled with reduced work hours or lost health insurance, or both. Meanwhile, the NNMFHC adapts continually to changes brought about by health care reform, and continues to be the medical home for those who do not have one elsewhere. Experts agree that free clinics will be a main avenue for providing access to health care for many years to come.
