VAFCC Launches a Volunteer Opportunity Board & Volunteer Directory

VAFCC serves as an important safeguard resource for working families who can’t afford health care or health insurance. Free clinics are experiencing an influx of new patients as Virginians lose their jobs and their employer-sponsored health care due to the economic fallout from the pandemic.

Volunteers are the life blood of VAFCC but due to the pandemic and other factors, clinics have seen a decrease in volunteerism, especially in licensed healthcare providers. Realizing the critical role volunteers play in service delivery and with the rising need for free clinic services, the VAFCC, which represents 60 clinics across the state launched a Volunteer Opportunity Board &Volunteer Directory. This is a centralized, easy-to-use, web-based tool that quickly and conveniently connects interested health care volunteers with current volunteer needs in Virginia’s free clinics. If you are interested in assisting Virginia’s underserved, visit the Volunteer Opportunity Board and Directory. Volunteers can review current needs as well as register to add their name to the directory of interested volunteers for free clinics to contact once an opportunity becomes available.
