2021-2022 AmeriCorps Vista Leader Wisconsin Association of Free and Chartable Clinics

Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics

About the organization

The Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (WAFCC) mission is to support, strengthen and advocate for Wisconsin’s free and charitable clinics and their unique approach to serving their patients and their communities.

The Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (WAFCC) formed in 2014 as a result of several of the state’s Free and Charitable Clinics (FCC's) coming together to recognize the need to evolve and redefine whom they serve in the changing healthcare landscape. WAFCC tells the story of Wisconsin's safety-net clinic, their communities, their patients, and their continued need.

Each year our organization provides state advocacy, year-round education opportunities, consulting services, and most recently telehealth services to clinics. WAFCC works to enhance the sustainability of new and existing free and charitable clinics by fostering collaboration, networking, and sharing resources.
