Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The most recent estimates from the Washington State Insurance Commissioner indicate that there are 27,000 people in our community without insurance. This figure is expected to rise 20% due to recent changes in Medicaid procedures, also known as Medicaid unwinding. Grace Clinic seeks to serve those with no health insurance and limited income. Without health insurance, low-income adults have limited or no access to the vital healthcare services that they need. Veterans and seniors often do not have access to dental services through the Veterans Administration or Medicare. For mental healthcare, along with community capacity constraints, low-income uninsured adults often find counseling services unaffordable. Seniors may not have access through Medicare. As a free clinic, Grace Clinic removes the financial barrier that inhibits access to these vital healthcare services for low-income adults.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The primary goal for Grace Clinic is to provide high-quality healthcare services that are delivered holistically and affirm the dignity and value of each person - all at no cost to the patient.

Medically, we aim to provide chronic disease management for conditions such as diabetes and hypertension. These types of conditions require ongoing access to healthcare services and Grace Clinic bridges this gap for low-income, uninsured adults.

With the recent expansion of the dental program, Grace Clinic aims to offer access to restorative (e.g. fillings) and preventative (e.g. cleanings) services which are a significant need amongst lower-income adults.

We also strive to meet the mental health needs of low-income, uninsured adults by eliminating the financial barrier that blocks access to mental healthcare.

Volunteers fuel our ability to achieve these goals. Grace Clinic is staffed primarily by volunteers in various stages of their respective professions. Volunteers fall into three general categories: students/trainees, working professionals, and retirees. With their commitment to serve, we are able to provide care to those who seek assistance from Grace Clinic. The combination of dedicated volunteers plus generous donations from the community add up to free healthcare access for low-income uninsured and underserved adults.

Grace Clinic has been in operation since 2002. As we celebrate more than 21 years of service to the community, the impact of the incredible volunteer team and responsiveness of the community have helped thousands to manage and improve their health conditions. Grace Clinic volunteers contribute more than 20,000 hours each year to serve those seeking care.

This year, Grace Clinic celebrates 21 years of serving the community. In that time, we have grown from seeing patients for a few hours each week to a full-time clinic providing medical, dental and mental health services to low-income uninsured and under-served adults in Tri-Cities WA.

In the more than two decades that Grace Clinic has been in operation, we have provided more than 106,000 patient visits to those who might not otherwise have received care. On average, 250 people volunteer at the clinic each year to serve those in need.

In February 2023, Grace Clinic launched an expansion of the dental program. We are on track to double the number of dental patients seen this year.

With a full staff of counseling interns reporting to our Director of Counseling, the number of counseling sessions held has increased by 71% over last year.
