Bread for the City has provided primary medical care to uninsured and low-income children and adults since 1974. Our medical staff includes two full time physicians, a physician assistant, a family nurse practitioner, and more than 20 volunteer physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, residents, students and others.
Our medical services include:
- Medical examinations

The clinic also provides examinations, medications, lab tests, and referrals at no charge.
In February 2012, we opened our brand new Dental Clinic — through which our staff dentist and dental assistant provide services ranging from routine cleanings to root canals, and everything in between. Make a gift to our dental clinic here!
At our Southeast Center location, a medical clinic is operated on-site by our partners at Unity Health Care.
