Americares Free Clinics are at the heart of a caring community, bringing together skilled volunteers and donated services from area health care providers, including hospitals and diagnostic laboratories, to serve our Connecticut neighbors in need.
Nobody should have to choose between paying for food and paying for health care. Sadly, it’s a crisis that many Americans face. Here in our home state of Connecticut, where more than 172,000 residents live without health insurance, Americares operates four free clinics – in Danbury, Norwalk, Bridgeport and Stamford. The clinics bring together skilled volunteers and donated services to provide quality care to uninsured residents, helping more people get the primary care and medicines they need but cannot afford.
“I receive very good care here— there are no mistakes and everyone cares. I am happy. Good people really do exist.”
Bridgeport clinic patient Kenny
