Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic, a free clinic in Charleston, SC, is an extraordinary example of what can be accomplished when a group of volunteers work together to serve the needs of the community. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, we have been able to provide a free primary care home to adults living at or below the 200% of poverty level on Johns, Wadmalaw or James Island.
