GEFCC is a Federally Qualified Health Center which, in the most-recent 12-month period, provided the full range of quality, affordably priced, fully integrated primary care services to over 51,000 different persons via over 167,000 medical, behavioral health, and dental appointments. 

Your support this Giving Tuesday will help us provide services to more families in need.  

  • » $50 will give a dental exam and cleaning to an uninsured adult patient. Our Dental Clinic is one of the few that provide affordable dental health services to uninsured adults. Good dental health is key for good overall health.  
  • » $35 will give a dental exam and cleaning to an uninsured child. 
  • » $25 will give a lifesaving cervical cancer screening to a woman at risk. Each year, more than 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and over 4,000 die from this disease. Regular screenings will save womens’ lives.
