A Commitment to Excellence

From the beginning, AFC has maintained a clear focus on mission and a commitment to medical, organizational and operational excellence, including:

  • A Board of Directors that is active, engaged, knowledgeable and supportive
  • Strategic planning to ensure progress toward clearly defined goals
  • Program design and evaluation to ensure objectives are being achieved and that medical services are meeting patient/community needs
  • Fiscal responsibility that includes an annual audit and active financial management by a Finance Committee that includes Board, community members and the Executive Director
  • Resource development that is appropriately staffed, includes multiple sources of income and is transparent and accountable to funders
  • Volunteer management that ensures volunteers are qualified, trained and appropriately placed
  • Effective community partnerships that allow us to leverage services and maximize our impact on the community

Arlington Free Clinic has been honored with numerous awards recognizing this commitment to excellence.
