The Jubilee Center’s Free Clinic provides weekly medical attention at no cost. Local doctors and nurses donate their time each Thursday and are assisted by nursing students from the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College and pre-med students from Bates College. The Dempsey Center provides cancer screenings. Flu vaccination clinics and other additional services are provided when available.
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. The Clinic is open from 8:00-10:00 on Thursdays. No appointment needed; patients are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. Mask and vaccine required, click here for an info sheet on current operations!
Donate to 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.
