Need Help with Medical Checkup?
We understand that sometimes your money for Medical Expenses, your money is not in your budget. Rent, utilities, bus fare or fixing the car may have stretched your budget so thin that there’s nothing left to see Medical help. We can help.
If you have questions about our hours, your eligibility or the forms of ID needed, please call us at (715) 387-0395. Open five days per week, our friendly staff will guide you through the process. (Note that the pantry is closed on Sundays and holidays.)

Why Should We Care?

Badger Care Plus Core program is starting but has many exceptions including a 12-month waiting period to become eligible after having access to health insurance.
Unemployment rates in the area have risen.

Surrounding area free clinics are operating at full capacity.

Will serve residents who have no insurance and have low income.
Will be open the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings from 5-9 p.m.
