Volunteer at CFC!

Clackamas Free Clinic relies on the collective effort of volunteer support in a range of medical and administrative areas to keep the clinic running. Volunteers contribute to our daily operations and our long-term mission of ensuring that low-income, under-served Clackamas County residents have access to quality health care. We are always in need of nurses, doctors, physician’s assistants and other healthcare professionals to provide medical care to our patients. Volunteers are the foundation and critical component of the clinic’s day-to-day operations. If you are interested in volunteering, please call our clinic at 503.722.4400 or click below to apply.
