Community clinics throughout California are feeling the pressure of the economic and budget crisis. Funding cuts are straining services, while the number of uninsured needing care is increasing. The Saban Free Clinic shares these hardships, and is facing these challenges with continued commitment to quality, free care for the uninsured population of Los Angeles County.
The Saban Free Clinic has a 43-year history of providing medical, dental, and social services to the most vulnerable residents of Los Angeles County free of cost — and free of judgment. In addition to providing direct medical services, the Clinic’s eligibility workers enroll clients in programs like Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, and Healthy Kids. Because of this outreach work, The Saban Free Clinic is now the medical home for thousands of people in Los Angeles.
Now more than ever, clinics like The Saban Free Clinic are in great need of core support funding. The core support funding from Blue Shield of California Foundation helps The Saban Free Clinic to focus its resources where they are needed most: providing care and services to improve the health and well being of its clients.
