Our patients are people you see every day in our community – like the young cashier handing you your order at a busy ice cream shop, and the older gentleman counting your shirts at your neighborhood dry cleaner. Others work behind the scenes – like the dishwasher in a popular restaurant and the evening security guard at a local office building. Still, others have faithfully served their customers for years, working as a caregiver and cleaning homes. They work hard and are focused on doing a good job so they can provide for their own families. Most never thought they would ever need free health care.
All live within Hillsborough County and have incomes at, or below, 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (for a family of 4, this is up to $4,417 per month). Most are parents with children who live at home.
Although most of our patients work, their jobs do not include access to affordable health insurance.
In recent years, an increasing number of new patients came to Outreach Free Clinic and Resource Center after losing their job and their health insurance.
