San Francisco Free Clinic

San Francisco Free Clinic (SFFC) is an amazing clinic that is supported 100% by private giving.  A Partner of SFCCC, SFFC strategically located on California & 9th Avenue, is the only free clinic in that area and one of the City’s remaining free clinics.  Over 80% of their support is raised in a single event hosted at the Ritz Carlton in November of every year.  San Francisco’s belief in easy access to health care is strongly felt as a wide variety of businesses, professionals and individuals come together to offer their support to this national model clinic.  Special tribute was expressed this year by one of the clinic’s co founder, Dr. Trisha Gibbs – Honoring her father, Warren Hellman.  Trish spoke how her father is the backbone of the clinic assuring that the clinic receives the support it needs to help over 1600 patients each year.  Dr. Gibbs honored her father following Jewish tradition, expressing gratitude for his belief and support for the dream to open a free clinic.  John Gressman, SFCCC President & CEO reflects, “The love, support and caring of the over 800 people at the luncheon for the clinic and the patients they serve are testimony to all Bay Area people!
