Volunteers are our lifeblood.
Volunteers are our lifeblood. Clinic by the Bay could not exist without our volunteers. Each month, more than 130 volunteers provide caring, compassionate care to our friends and neighbors in the community. Our mission at Clinic by the Bay is not only to provide a meaningful volunteer experience to our volunteers – it is a core tenet of who we are.
We engage volunteer medical providers and other volunteers (e.g., receptionists, eligibility screeners, interpreters, health educators) in all aspects of clinic and organizational operations.
Our volunteer team consists of retirees, students, and those who give time to the clinic in addition to their careers. All volunteers are committed to a culture of mutual respect, caring and community.
Doctors often tell us that at Clinic by the Bay they love being able to focus on their patients, instead of paperwork or insurance forms… many of our volunteers remain with the clinic for years. In a recent survey, we found that 100% of respondents would recommend Clinic by the Bay as a place to volunteer and 78% of all volunteers have been volunteering for six months or more.
