Consider this: an estimated 50,000 Fairfax County residents are uninsured. Nearly two-thirds are immigrants from low-income households, even though immigrants comprise only 28% of the population. The need for affordable, culturally-sensitive medical care is dire, and Culmore Clinic answers the call. This interfaith, nonprofit healthcare clinic serves over 300 patients a year (96% are immigrants), offering holistic medical care that includes physical therapy, HIV and Hepatitis C testing, mental health counseling, and specialty referrals – and no one is turned away. It’s all made possible through volunteers and partners who donate or subsidize key services, including 16 congregations, two universities, Inova Health System, and the National Institutes of Health. A church provides free facilities; three medical and two patient support staff are supplemented by more than 40 volunteers who provide interpretation services and are also licensed therapists, nurses, physical therapists, and physicians. The primary challenge is increasing demand, so this year the clinic plans to double its operations from one to two days each week. A community united in care: won’t you join them?
