ABOUT THE COMMUNITY FREE CLINIC
To help Cabarrus County adults move toward wellness by providing comprehensive healthcare and pharmacy services.
Dedicated staff and volunteers, generous contributions from our donors, and community Sponsors…together, we are The Community Free Clinic. Together, we serve the community.
Who We Serve
We offer primary care, chronic disease management, an in-house lab, onsite pharmacy, specialist care and referrals, and behavioral health to low-income uninsured adults of Cabarrus County.
The Community Free Clinic is the only place in Cabarrus County for free access to medical services and prescription medications.
To qualify as a patient, adults must have a household income at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Line. The Community Free Clinic helps those adults who do not have private health insurance and do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare.
By treating uninsured low-income adults, the Community Free Clinic helps to improve long term patient health outcomes and reduce non-emergency room visits to the Emergency Department.

The Community Free Clinic has been helping uninsured adults in Cabarrus County receive free medical care for chronic diseases for over 29 years.
In 1994, Dr. George Liles and Dr. David Lockhart (pictured right) established the Community Free Clinic because they recognized that many low-income working age adults in Cabarrus County did not have health insurance and therefore, did not have access to medical care or prescription medication to treat chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, and COPD.
The Clinic first opened its doors on February 15, 1994. Since then, it has outgrown three locations before moving to its current location in 2003.
Currently, the Clinic has both full time and part time staff and hundreds of volunteers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians and more.
