STAMFORD, Conn. -- The new AmeriCares Free Clinic of Stamford is seeking volunteers fluent in Spanish and English to serve as interpreters and screen patients for eligibility when it opens next month.
Volunteers are needed to work one four-hour shift per month on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age.
The AmeriCares mobile clinic will make stops in Stamford’s East Side, West Side and in the Waterside neighborhood starting in January, providing primary care services to low-income Stamford and Darien residents without health insurance.
When it opens, the AmeriCares clinic will be the only free clinic in Stamford, where 20 percent of the population is uninsured.
For more information about how you can volunteer, contact AmeriCares Free Clinics Volunteer Services Associate Lorraine Larkin at 203-658-9521 or email her here.
AmeriCares also operates free clinics in Norwalk, Bridgeport and Danbury, serving nearly 3,000 residents annually. Since 1994, those clinics have provided more than $50 million in free health care services for people in need.
