All services are provided by volunteers or the CFC's on-staff nurse practitioner or dentist. More than 500 community members, including over 150 physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and dentists, volunteer at the CFC annually.

Our mission at the Charlottesville Free Clinic is...
To provide a volunteer community health support system that offers high-quality health care to the working uninsured population, which would otherwise have no access to care;
To provide practical experience for current and future health care professionals;
To hasten, through education and advocacy, the creation of a comprehensive policy for access to health care.
