Medical and Non-Medical Volunteering
We always have a need for dedicated, passionate, skilled volunteers interested in both medical and non-medical roles. If you are interested in helping with our clinic, whether you are a medical provider or not, contact Josh Rozovsky, our Medical Services coordinator. You will also need to fill out our volunteer application form.
Not a Medical Provider? We Still Need You!
If you are not a Connecticut-licensed medical provider, and are interested in helping in other capacities outside our clinic, we always have a need for dedicated volunteers helping with office administration, technical improvements, graphic design, the board, our food pantry and our many other programs.

Duties and Time Commitment for Clinic Volunteers
Our clinic volunteers typically volunteer at one-two clinic nights per month – about 4 hours. Plan on arriving shortly before 6pm and leaving between 8:00pm and 9:00pm. We stop accepting new patients after 8:00pm.
Duties for all providers include abiding by the volunteer handbook, maintaining client confidentiality, complying with all State and Federal laws (including HIPAA, FERPA, and HIV confidentiality laws) acting within scope of practice, and maintaining professionalism at all times.
