Since 2016. A free medical, dental and vision clinic for the City of Portland connecting people to the resources and services they need and deserve!
The Beginning: In January 2016, people with a similar purpose to serve those in need of health care gathered together to organize a free clinic for the Portland area community. The need for health care is big, especially with an unstable healthcare system (with the Affordable Care Act and medicaid under scrutiny). Multiple local non-profit organizations and churches united to raise funds and put on a free clinic to serve and alleviate the desperate need for health care. The work here in Portland has inspired other nearby communities with clinics popping up in Albany, Eugene, Vancouver and Tacoma, WA and Boise, Idaho.
Impact Your Health free clinics offer free dental care, general medical care, and health education services to uninsured and under-insured people in the Portland metro area.

The Impact Your Health Executive Committee has reluctantly decided to place our IYHP 2020 free clinics ON HOLD. We have not given up, but are accepting the wise guidance of many who have counseled us to push the “pause” button. Our next steps will be led by how life in Oregon progresses in the coming months.
Our commitment to the goal of providing quality free healthcare for those who cannot secure it on their own remains strong. We will all have the opportunity to be part of another community health outreach when life conditions allow us to do so, — as soon as God reopens the doors and calls us to activate this unique ministry.
Thank you! Prayerfully,
Brenda Duerksen and Jenny Jin
