La Clínica started in 1971 as a single storefront clinic with the efforts of a group of students from UC Berkeley. These students, aware of the gap in health care for lower-income populations, held a conviction: that every person deserved access to quality, culturally appropriate heath care, regardless of their ability to pay. Volunteers remain an essential component in helping us achieve our goals.
La Clínica offers a variety of opportunities to get involved. We are always interested in matching personal interests and experience of our volunteers with the needs of the organization.
