About Us- The Problem
Almost 1 in 10 Californians still lack any form of medical insurance. An even greater number do not receive ongoing dental or vision care due to financial barriers. Dental, medical and vision problems, when left untreated, can often become sources of great pain and anxiety for underprivileged families. Preventable dental disease can lead to expensive emergency room visits, putting stress on an already taxed public healthcare system. Healing California aims to bridge the gaps in access to basic care felt by underserved communities.
Our Mission & Vision
Healing California provides free medical, dental and vision care to those in need in California.
Through the recruitment of volunteer professionals who serve at temporary, pop-up clinics across the state, we aim to deliver a high standard of basic care. Our priorities are to take patients out of pain, remove infection and put them back on the path to better health. We treat our patients with the dignity that they deserve and provide a fulfilling, life-affirming experience for our volunteers.
Dental, vision and medical services. Services will vary by event so check on the individual clinic to find out more.
There is always a need for general volunteers at our clinics. Whether it is checking patients in, putting together pairs of glasses, or a variety of other tasks, we always need volunteers to help out. This doesn’t require any previous experience or training.

Healing California is all About…
Access to Care

Using a volunteer based model makes sure our resources go further, which allows us to make a greater impact in the communities we serve.
We have an emphasis on the quality of the volunteer experience. We give professionals the tools, framework and guidance they need to have a fulfilling, rewarding and impactful relationship with Healing California.
