Westminster Free Clinic operates two weekly free medical clinics, Wednesday in Thousand Oaks and Tuesday in Oxnard, serving the working poor and uninsured. Westminster Free Clinic is 100% free, serving as a safety-net for those with no other affordable options and fill gaps as needed. The clinic is first come first serve, providing access to health care to over 100 patients each night, each location, some 15,000 each year.
The Clinic is staffed entirely by volunteers, including doctors, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals. They also serve as a training site for high school students considering careers in healthcare. About 80 students at each location participate in this 2-year internship program.
ZontaCV supports this program by providing a full hot dinner for 80+ volunteers once a month at the Thousand Oaks location. We have also provided Target gift cards to families during the pandemic and adopted two families for Christmas gifts (Dec. 2020). We are grateful for the opportunity to support this phenomenal program and the dedicated crew of students, volunteers and professionals.
