Help the Holland Free Health Clinic Drive Free Medical Access Through Typical Real Estate Transactions
The Holland Free Health Clinic (HFHC) is a volunteer-driven organization that provides underserved individuals with free access to health care. As a member of Investing In Communities®, HFHC can benefit from typical real estate transactions, including purchases, sales, and commercial leases. $2,707 has already been raised.

A privately funded nonprofit organization, HFHC has provided more than $15 million in medical services since 2002. HFHC collaborates with various medical providers and agencies to provide free health care to individuals in need throughout Ottawa and Allegan counties. HFHC generates $3 in community impact for every dollar raised.
