Monterey Free Clinic

Volunteers Are The Heart Of RotaCare Monterey!

Every Wednesday, over 30 volunteers come together as a team to staff the Monterey RotaCare clinic. Here are a few reasons they volunteer:

“Because people are so grateful when they get help. The attitude of gratitude brings me back each week.”  –Helen

“I really enjoy working with people, and knowing that I am helping someone is really gratifying for me.“ –Margie

“I like helping others – but prefer doing tasks that keep me ‘out of the spotlight’.” RotaCare is the perfect place for me to volunteer because there are a hundred things that need to be done behind the scenes to enable the clinic to operate efficiently.” –Cheryl

“I volunteer at RotaCare because I can help disadvantaged and truly grateful people of my community, in a collegial environment, without the burden of the business side of medicine, and feel rewarded for my work.” –Greg

In an effort to protect the health of our patients, volunteers, and staff and in conjunction with the "Shelter In Place" order from Monterey County, we have suspended ALL clinical services for until further notice.

Wednesdays, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis or as a scheduled follow-up appointment. Check-in starts at (2:30 pm) to get a voucher to be seen that evening. Patient registration begins at 4:00 pm. We request a $10 donation per visit.
