HOW TO HELP
If you can spare 4-6 hours a month, you can make a significant difference in the quality of someone’s life, and help us build a healthier community.
Our Clinic relies on volunteer healthcare providers in order to serve our patients. If you are an active or a retired healthcare provider seeking a meaningful volunteer opportunity, we want to meet you. We have an ongoing need for healthcare providers for the Monday and Thursday evening Basic Urgent Care Clinic.
Admin / Support Volunteers
If you have a passion for helping others and an interest in health and wellness, your talents and skills are welcome. We are currently seeking to fill the following volunteer positions:
WOW Educators - The Working on Wellness® Education Program is always looking for volunteers to help teach and plan health education presentations
Support staff - Proficient in word processing, spreadsheets, and database software to assist administrative staff.
Receptionists - For daytime and evening clinics. Answer phones, take messages, file, manage client records and assist the clients
Health care provider speakers for monthly WOW! Forums.
Donors are the life blood of the Clinic. Without the support of friends within the community who view Clinic operations as critical to a healthy, vibrant Sequim, the programs that it offers would diminish in scope or even cease to operate.
We can do more with less
Every dollar you donate is worth more, thanks to the professional services of more than 70 healthcare volunteers, and to Olympic Medical Center which donates the cost of imaging and laboratory tests for our patients.
Your pledge of $200 pays for an emergency dental visit for one patient; $280 covers the cost for one patient visit.
No gift too small
Even the smallest amount of support can go a long way to help those in our community. Even the smaller gifts will provide:
Glucose test strips for a diabetic patient;
A follow-up appointment to our Chronic Healthcare Clinic for a patient with diabetes, respiratory or heart disease, or other chronic illness;
Emergency dental care for someone with an oral infection, abscess, broken tooth, or other dental crisis;
A visit to our Basic Urgent Care Clinic for an uninsured patient with an emergency health issue
Benefits of Giving Directly
Your gift stays in your community for helping your neighbors;
Your gift is leveraged for maximum effect through generous volunteer efforts;
Your gift is tax-deductible; the Clinic is a 501(c)(3) organization under I.R.S. rules.
The clinic collaborates with many healthcare-related organizations in the area to enhance the quality and level of care provided to the un- and under-insured people in our community. Presented below is a comprehensive, but not all inclusive list of our community partners:
