Committed to make Dawson County a
better place by providing health care
for those who have none


The Good Shepherd Clinic

Many residents of Dawson County are uninsured …lacking sufficient resources to provide for their health care needs. This is a nationwide problem, and in response, communities across the country have developed Free Clinics that bring together volunteer health care professionals and other community volunteers to offer free health care to the uninsured people in their community. Each Free Clinic is unique, in that its development and services are based on the particular needs and resources of the local community.
