Free Clinic

The Jubilee Center’s Free Clinic provides weekly medical attention at no cost. A local doctor donates her time each Thursday and is assisted by nursing students from the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College and pre-med students from Bates College. Health Equity Alliance regularly provides HIV and Hepatitis C testing and the Dempsey Center provides cancer screenings. Flu vaccination clinics are held annually by Central Maine Medical Center and additional services are provided when available.

"Zak Kofos has been part of the Bates Public Health Initiative, a group of students who volunteer at the Free Medical Clinic at the Jubilee Center and help develop programs and initiatives," said Erin Reed from Trinity. "He has been focusing on dental health and has already helped with an oral cancer screening and now today was able to bring Healthy Smiles for ME." The free clinic served around 20 people in four hours and Kofos said he would like to try expanding services the next time. Kofos, a Bates graduate, is applying to dental schools. "There is no one for them to go," said Leavitt as she cleaned Brown's teeth.

The Free Clinic serves those in need in the Lewiston-Auburn metropolitan area. Treatments include donated over-the-counter medicines, illness-specific prescriptions (usually low-cost generics from discounted lists, no narcotics), wound care, instruction in managing chronic illnesses, and supportive counseling.  Work-capacity and BMV forms are filled out by physician.  Volunteers help patients apply for free-care programs at local hospitals and schedule appointments for new primary care. We do not do STD assessment and treatment.

The Clinic is open from 9:00-11:30 on Thursdays. No appointment needed; patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Anyone with questions about upcoming dates for testing and vaccinations can email the Jubilee Center at

Are you interested in supporting the Free Clinic?
Patients of the Free Clinic are often homeless, sick, hungry, and unable to afford medications. Your contribution can help patients access what they need, such as Penicillin for an infected tooth ($13), an elastic bandage for a sprained ankle ($10), or heartburn, depression, or blood pressure pills ($4). We also like to keep many over-the-counter medicines on hand. Donations to the Clinic’s Prescription Fund can be made here:
