Organization Description and Mission::
Since 1994, the Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations has been committed to improving the lives of individuals needing health care but lacking appropriate access as a result of being under- or uninsured, socioeconomic circumstances, homelessness or risk of homelessness and other vulnerabilities. We operate the Birmingham Free Clinic in partnership with the Salvation Army South Side location and the Women’s Center Clinic, serving women who are victims of intimate partner violence. At these clinics we provide direct acute, primary and specialty health care, health education, pharmaceutical assistance, preventive care and medical and social services case management.
The mission of the Program for Health Care to Underserved Populations is to facilitate, provide and improve access to high-quality care among those in need through community partnerships, volunteerism, service learning and advocacy.
