Help us reach our $25,000 goal so we can continue to serve those in need.
Situated in the heart of Allapattah, one of the poorest zip codes in Miami-Dade county, the St. John Bosco Clinic serves some of the neediest patients in the county with free, high quality healthcare. These patients are uninsured, low wage workers unable to otherwise access healthcare. And, in these times of COVID-19, they are often the essential workers of our community: grocery store clerks, childcare providers, housekeepers and day laborers.
Thanks to donor support, the Clinic represents the first line of defense for thousands in Miami-Dade County. Now, in times of COVID-19, the clinic faces an unrelenting demand. Since June, the Clinic has seen an increase in new patients registered compared to the same time last year.
The impact of COVID-19 on Miami’s economic landscape has resulted in a drastic increase in new patients, many who have lost health coverage along with their jobs. Help us reach our $25,000 goal so we can continue to serve those in need.

Here's how far your gift goes:
We are asking for your support so that not one single patient is turned away. At a time when hospitals are at capacity, the work of the Clinic is more critical than ever in preventing the use of emergency rooms for conditions that can be managed through preventive care.
Your donation can change lives. Together we can face the effects of the pandemic on the most vulnerable in our community and rebuild for a healthier and stronger Miami. We thank you in advance for making a difference in our community.
