Washington Federal Foundation awards $1,000 grant to the Free Clinic

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington has received a $1,000 grant from the Washington Federal Foundation to help fund the children’s oral health program. The program served low-income, uninsured children through nearly 300 visits in fiscal year 2016-17. The clinic provides dental services at its location at the Jim Parsley Center and in its mobile dental van at Clark County schools and community-sponsored events. Dental volunteers fill cavities and screen, seal and varnish children’s teeth. Without the support of the Free Clinic, many of these patients would not seek care until numerous cavities appeared or other illness related to oral health caused the use of the emergency room.
