Details: The idea for the Women’s Clinic began in fall of 1996. During that time, there was steady discussion of specifically reaching out to women and children, who normally comprised a minority at the regular Tuesday night General Clinic. The reason for this most likely stems from the fact that the General Clinic is open during the evening, and is therefore unsafe or inconvenient for that particular population to utilize. In an effort to address these concerns, a expansion of the General Clinic was put into place on Monday afternoons at the Berkeley Free Clinic drop-in center. After a semester-long trial run, it was found that the new ‘Expansion Clinic’ was not accomplishing its original goals. Following a six month hiatus of re-planning, the new drop-in center was re-opened at the Dwight Way Women’s Shelter in the spring of 1998.
Details: The mission of the Berkeley Free Clinic is to empower individuals and communities by providing accessible, client-centered health services and information. Since the Clinic opened, there has been an ever-present, albeit dynamic, need for its services as social conditions have undergone shifts and changes. It has become something of an icon in the area, and has served countless thousands in a variety of ways during its 45-year history.
