We Care Jacksonville, Inc. (We Care) was organized in 1993 as a collaborative effort of the Duval County Medical Society, Duval County Health Department, George S. Trotter, MD, local churches, hospitals, and community organizations to provide donated health care to low-income persons who are uninsured and 200% at or below of the Federal Poverty Level. We Care has evolved into a community partnership of health care professionals, community volunteers and health systems donate their time, skills and services to the community to provide medical specialty care to those who either lack access to care or cannot afford health care services.
We Care receives referrals from a network of primary care clinics and arranges appointments with appropriate medical specialists who have agreed to donate their services to our patients.

St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach Ministry (MHOM) provides free acute and preventive medical care to those who are medically underserved in Northeast Florida, by bringing fully staffed doctors-offices-on-wheels to the neighborhoods where its services are needed most.
The MHOM primarily focuses on three areas where the underserved, uninsured and underinsured are most prevalent in our region:
1. The Rural Outreach Ministry serves the very poor men and women who work in the agricultural fields of Putnam and St. Johns Counties.
2. The Urban Outreach Ministry reaches out to the working poor, the homeless and their families within the urban neighborhoods of Duval County, as well as Clay and Nassau Counties.
3. The Pediatric Outreach Ministry provides children and adolescents, attending 23 middle and high schools in Duval County’s Full Service Schools, with access to medical care.
St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach makes medical care possible for those in Northeast Florida who cannot afford it and provides preventive health care that effectively changes lives. St. Vincent’s relies upon the generosity of our donors to continue delivering these critically important health services to the poor and disadvantaged in our community. It is through philanthropic gifts that this program is able to offer better health and hope to children and adults with nowhere else to turn.
Children: No financial information is needed. For information on our pediatric program and which schools are serviced, please contact 904-308-7919.
Community Health Outreach has been providing services for 25 years, operating a primary medical care and emergency dental treatment facility administered through the Access to Health Care Act, food pantry, and pregnancy center located in Duval County, Florida.
All services are provided by volunteers; general volunteers, doctors, dentists, nurses, hygienists and other medical and dental professionals. The free Healing Hands Clinic serves adults, age 18 and older residing in Duval County.
Eligible patients are uninsured with a family income at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines for medical and 150% for dental services. The primary target is the working uninsured or those who are not eligible for any other resource (i.e. Medicaid or Shands Jacksonville Hospital Card). Many medical patients require primary care and education to manage chronic conditions (related to the illness as well as nutrition, exercise, and medication use).
