Charity Navigator, the nation’s largest charity evaluator, once again awarded AFC its top rating of 4 stars for financial health, responsibility, and transparency. Only 14% of the organizations evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least four consecutive 4-star evaluations.

Arlington Free Clinic was selected to receive the Arlington Community Foundation’s 2018 Community Impact Award—volunteers old and new were honored during the Spirit of Community Luncheon.


Dental Program Expansion

We met our first $1M Dental Capital Campaign goal, and are on our way to reaching our overall goal of $1.5M by the end of the calendar year. Our construction plans for the new in-house, three-chair dental clinic are well underway, and we look forward to being operational in a few short weeks.

This time next year, we plan to be tripling the number of dental patients we can serve.


Last year, we hosted five Survivor Celebrations for AFC’s breast cancer survivors, and invited guest experts to talk about ways the women can stay healthy, now that they’ve beaten cancer, through nutrition and exercise, getting the recommended preventative screenings, and caring for their mental health.
