It’s been a remarkable year for St. Petersburg Free Clinic. Supporters like you were generous in their support of our programs. Over the past year, the Free Clinic has distributed food to more than 55,000 people in our community, provided over 9,000 free health and wellness services, and helped over 400 men, women and children on the path to independent living.

Over the past year, we were able to expand and transform the We Help Services food bank into a Client Choice Pantry. The new pantry provides a shopping experience similar to major grocery stores for our clients. They’re able to choose foods that are consistent with their dietary, cultural and family needs. The shopping experience provides a sense of dignity to clients, and the new model makes fruits, vegetables and other fresh, perishable food more accessible.

Additionally, we purchased a new property for the Men’s Residence, which provides a significantly improved experience for the men in the program. Thank you to everyone who helped us with the purchase and support of the program. We look forward to making a bigger impact on the lives of our residents who are working to become self-sufficient.

Every year, we’re astounded at the amazing support of our community. Because of you, we’re able to ensure that our neighbors in need have access to life’s basic needs – food, shelter and health care.
