The Under Resourced

IBC partners with organizations that provide for three critical areas of need for under-resourced: Medical care, emergency housing and food, and clothing assistance

Medical Care

  • The Kinwest Clinic

    We are a free and charitable medical clinic for those without medical insurance or financial means to pay for basic healthcare services. We do not provide emergency or trauma care at our clinic, but can provide basic medical care and health education for you and your family.
