Connecting the Community

Arlington Free Clinic leverages resources to provide high-quality care to our patients at the lowest possible cost to the community. Since 1994, over 2,800 have volunteered at AFC and over 15,000 have made a financial contribution to our mission. Hundreds of businesses, civic groups, religious organizations, schools and medical practices have gotten involved. To efficiently meet the complex needs of our patients while avoiding the duplication of services, AFC works with Virginia Hospital Center, other nonprofits and the County to refer patients for resources that are already available elsewhere.

John G. Milliken, past president of The Venable Foundation and longtime partner of AFC said that our organization “is a sterling example of what the best impulses and the collective effort of a community can create in support of those most in need.”
