COMPREHENSIVE CARE

Keeping kids healthy can be quite a task especially if your child is not covered by insurance. That is why Shifa Free Clinic is here to help. We offer free health services to uninsured children in the Tri County area. Our clinic is staffed by experienced health care professionals, including a nurse practitioner and a bilingual assistant, who provide caring and compassionate care. Our clinic does not provide emergency care, hospitalization or trauma care.

PEDIATRIC OUTREACH SERVICES

We partner with schools and organizations that serve low income families to provide outreach clinical care and vaccinations to your families and children. We want to keep your child healthy and limit their number of absentee days from school. 

Many children who rely on free and reduced price lunches during school year go home to meager or no meals on weekends. Our Child Hunger Prevention Program works to fill that gap. If you are interested in donating, use the campaign link here!
