Caring Begins at Caridad

Caridad Center is the largest free healthcare clinic of its kind in the state of Florida.

With the help of over 400 professional and medical volunteers, Caridad Center provides comprehensive health and dental services to the uninsured, working poor families of Palm Beach County, Florida. The services at Caridad Center save millions of dollars in uncompensated hospital care for the taxpayers of Palm Beach County by reducing the number of patients who use emergency room services because they have nowhere else to go.

In addition, Caridad offers additional services and programs for the entire family including:

Every dollar donated to Caridad saves taxpayers $2.50
  • mental health counseling
  • chronic disease management
  • breast cancer prevention
  • after-school tutoring
  • college scholarships
  • emergency assistance
  • girl scout troops
  • back to school supplies
  • holiday meals and gifts

Every dollar donated to Caridad saves taxpayers $2.50.  With 88 cents of every dollar directly funding our programs, Caridad serves almost 25,000 patient visits per year and thousands of families across our community.
