Our Mission

The mission of the Prince William Area Free Clinic, Inc. is to provide primary adult and pediatric medical care and acute adult dental care to qualified, low-income residents of Prince William County, Manassas City, and Manassas Park without duplicating services provided by other non-profit organizations.
Our Vision
The PWAFC provides quality health-care services to the homeless, indigent, and uninsured "working poor" populations of Prince William County, Manassas City, and Manassas Park. Through our partnerships, we are committed to providing primary medical and wellness programs that aim to prevent, control, and reverse chronic illnesses in these at-risk populations. Services are based on the values of advocacy, compassion, dignity, kindness, and stewardship. 

Our History
The PWAFC was originally founded in 1992, when community members, medical professionals, and local hospitals saw a need for free medical care for the low-income families of the Greater Prince William Area.

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) allowed the clinic to set up within its facility. This allowed the PWAFC to offer not only medical care but also basic dental care and diabetes education. These clinics at the VDH location were held once weekly and were walk-in only on a first-come first-served basis. 

In 2010, through great dedication and hard work,
the PWAFC opened its appointment-based health clinic in the basement of St. Margaret's Anglican Church in Woodbridge, Virginia. In 2013, the Episcopal Diocese gave the St. Margaret's facilities to PWAFC for exclusive use as a four-day-a-week appointment and walk-in clinic.

The PWAFC has grown into a primary-care home for hundreds of patients, with thousands of encounters each year run by a small staff and many volunteers. 

The PWAFC does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and the provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and patients.
