What We Do

The Illinois Association of Free & Charitable Clinics improves access to quality healthcare for low-income individuals who are uninsured or underinsured.

The IAFCC does this by:

  • Strengthening free and charitable clinics’ ability to provide services, develop resources, and engage stakeholders
  • Fostering partnerships to advance the overall capacity, quality, effectiveness, sustainability and affordability of the state healthcare safety net;
  • Educating the public to increase awareness regarding free and charitable clinics’ favorable impact on community wellness, healthcare costs, quality and access;
  • Advocating for health policy and financing mechanisms that advance access to quality, affordable health services for economically disadvantaged individuals;
  • Being a resource for informational and educational events; and
  • Offering volunteer opportunities for anyone interested in supporting the IAFCC mission.
