The mission of Bread for the City is to provide vulnerable residents of Washington, DC, with comprehensive services, including food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We recognize that all people share a common humanity, and that all are responsible to themselves and to society as a whole.
Bread for the City has provided primary medical care to uninsured and low-income children and adults since 1974. Our medical staff includes two full time physicians, a physician assistant, a family nurse practitioner, and more than 40 volunteer physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, residents, students and others.
Our medical services include:
The clinic also provides examinations, medications, lab tests, and referrals to DC residents, regardless of ability to pay.
In February 2012, we opened our brand new Dental Clinic ' through which our staff dentist and dental assistant provide services ranging from routine cleanings to root canals, and everything in between.
Access to dental care is vital for proper oral health, but many DC residents are unable to visit a dentist regularly due to a lack of insurance. Bread for the City addresses this great need by providing basic dental care to DC's uninsured and underinsured. We provide emergency and preventive care to English and non-English speaking patients alike ' serving more than 750 patients annually.
We adhere to a medical home model that integrates a variety of services (medical, dental, behavioral health) in order to best serve our patients overall needs ' rather than just their short-term symptoms. Our services include comprehensive oral exams, dental X-rays, dental cleaning, sealants, restorative work, dentures, root canal therapy, and extractions.
