Contact: Resource & Solution Center
Our Mission – We exist to serve the people of South Carolina. We are a free clinic, serving only those who have no usable medical insurance and are 18 or older.
About Us – In close relationships with medical professionals, service organizations, and hospitals in our community, we strive to provide care to those who have no other options.
We neither seek nor accept government funding or insurance reimbursements. We desire to partner with organizations which understand and empathize with our mission. We seek funding through Sponsorships, Donations, and In-Kind Giving.
Volunteers – We depend on a core of volunteers, often retirees, to perform a wide variety of critical services assisting those in need. Such persons are usually the first people our patients see when they enter the clinic and the last they see upon departure. If you have interpersonal, computer, or telephone skills, we may have a place for you.

Be 18 years old or older.
Be without medical insurance including Medicare, Medicaid, or Veterans’ Benefits.
Not have injuries covered by Workman’s Compensation.
