The mission of Community Connections Free Clinic is to provide basic health care for those who cannot afford or access medical services in Iowa County and surrounding areas. In their own words, some of our patients describe their experiences at CCFC, and what these experiences have meant to them.

“This is the second time I have gotten sick and have gotten such good care here at the clinic. I can’t tell you how much my husband and I appreciate the care that you are giving us. It would not be possible for me to get medical care otherwise, and the fact that you care enough to have interpreters here to help us is something we never expected. I am so grateful.”

“To all the staff at Community Connections Free Clinic: Just a quick note to thank you all for your kindness, time, and quality of care you provided me in my recent visit. I sincerely appreciate having a program like yours in place when I am sick and going through difficult times with no health insurance in place. God bless you all!”
A written note from a female patient

“The volunteers are wonderful, so nice. They are here to help us.”

“Without (the clinic), I don’t know what I’d do. It’s a blessing.”

“We’re so lucky the clinic is here. Other places don’t have this help.”

“I saw a lady with two kids. They were all sick. I just couldn’t comprehend how she would manage if the clinic wasn’t here to help her.”

“I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them. I could never afford the medication I need.”
