     OUR MISSION

 

     The Good Shepherd Clinic of Dawson County is a non-profit center that will provide free non-

     emergent health and wellness services for individuals that live, work or attend school in Dawson 

     County without  access to insurance.

 

    OUR VISION

 

    The Good Shepherd Clinic strives to make Dawson County a better place by providing health care for 

    those who have none.

    

     What is a Free Clinic?

     According to the U.S. Census Bureau, millions of people are without medical insurance in this country.

    

     Many residents of Dawson County are uninsured - lacking sufficient resources to provide for their

     health care needs.

  

     In response, communities across the country are developing Free Clinic that bring together volunteer

     health care professionals and other community volunteers to offer free health care to the uninsured

     people in their community.

 

     Free Clinics are private, non-profit, community based organizations that provide non-emergent health

     services at no cost to uninsured people.  They accomplish this through the use of volunteer health

     professionals and community volunteers, along with partnerships with other health providers.

    

     Each Free Clinic is unique, in that its development and services are based on the particular needs and

     resources of the local community.

 

     Care is made possible through the donation of goods and services, community contributions, and

     volunteers.

 

     Volunteer health professionals provide a significant portion of health care services and are in great 

     need if anyone is interested in volunteering.
