Welcome to the Southern Nevada Community Care Clinic!
OFFERING FREE MEDICAL CARE AND TREATMENT TO THE LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY
The Community Care Clinic was established in 2009 by a group of concerned physicians and community members to offset the devastating effects of recession on the citizens of Nevada. The organization will focus on the immediate needs of the community arising from escalating unemployment and loss of health insurance.
The Community Care Clinic takes advantage of existing resources donated by founding members and the generosity of willing community members and businesses. Volunteer time, products and services are needed to provide the necessary services. Highly efficient use of space and available resources will be undertaken to maximize the impact of every dollar spent. Medical care will be provided by volunteer health professionals.
Message from the Chair
SHAMOON AHMAD, MD, FACP
The rise and fall of fortunes during the great recession has humbled all and left many without a job and the means to obtain the basic necessities including healthcare. Southern Nevada Community Foundation (SNCF) and the “Community Care Clinics” were created in 2009 to fill the gap for struggling families and individuals. The foundation is managed by volunteer personnel and physicians.
SNCF is a 501(C)(3) non- profit public charity providing free medical care through its support of two primary care clinics, collaborates with local nonprofit organizations to provide healthcare services at remote sites, assistance with medications and groceries through a food bank. SNCF receives no government funding and all services are free.
