About

 

Providing free non-emergency dental care

The Barry Community Free Clinic serves uninsured adults (ages 18 and older) who have an income of less than twice the poverty guidelines as defined by the most recent federal data available from HHS (http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/14poverty.cfm).Services include dental evaluation and treatment, as well as assistance with co-pays at the Barry Community Health Center.


During fiscal year of 2013 - 2014, our free clinic documented providing medical services to 589 people, and about 120 people were seen for dental services. More than 200 new patients were seen by clinic staff over the twelve month period.

How can we provide free services?

We operate using volunteers with a very minimal payroll, which is covered by a grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield. Pennock Hospital generously provides our space, so we don’t have to worry about rent, either. But we do have some of the same expenses as other businesses: telephone and internet, paper, files, computers, software, medical supplies and equipment, stamps and ink, to name a few.

To help assist in covering additional costs, our clinic holds fundraising events throughout the year. We also rely heavily on charitable donations. Annual fundraisers include our End of the Year Individual Campaign and our Breaking Barriers 5K Riverside Run.

 

Patient Comments

"I find it a true blessing to have the BCFC here in Hastings. The last few years my family and I have had some difficult times due to loss of work. Even with a lack of financial resources, I was still able to receive vital medical care locally."
