Adopt a Clinic Today (ACT)

Adopt a Clinic Today (ACT) is a new program that allows individuals, groups, and businesses to “adopt” one of our twenty clinics either by buying equipment, supplies, or services, completing projects, or completely funding the clinic. Currently, two of our clinics are ACT eligible: our Youth In Need South Clinic and our Nahed Chapmen New American Academy Clinic.
