PATIENT INFORMATION

What you need to know: California CareForce (CCF) intends to help everyone they can however we are limited by time, space, number of professional volunteers, and supplies.  Because the services are free we expect thousands to show up.  These services are provided on a first come first served basis.

Each day we will be giving out patient numbers starting at 3:30 am on the morning of that day’s clinic.  Only 1 (one) number will be issued to each person in line. You may wait in line for someone whose circumstances do not allow them to wait, but you will not receive a number for yourself as well.  Once numbers run out, no other numbers will be issued for that day’s clinic.

What happens next: Starting at 5:30 am patients with numbers will be led into the clinic area in small groups to register.  Once registered, patients will wait inside (seating is provided) to be seen by professional volunteers.  Volunteers will provide services to patients all day.  Please note: If you not have a number by about 6 am you may not get served.  These clinics fill up fast so if you arrive later in the day you may not get service.  Because of the large number of patients seen each day, you should determine what your greatest need is (dental, medical, vision) and proceed to that treatment area first.

What to bring: It may a very long day and your comfort is your responsibility.  Bring food, warm clothing and any medicine you usually take such as for diabetes and/or blood pressure.

What not to bring: No illegal drugs, alcohol or firearms.

All services are FREE.  You do NOT need insurance or ID.
