With compassion and respect, St. Petersburg Free Clinic changes lives by providing nutritious food, supportive housing, health care, and education for our neighbors in need.

Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age. They include factors like socioeconomic status, education, housing, employment, and access to health care. St. Petersburg Free Clinic’s programs address social determinants of health and promote health equity by increasing access to housing for those experiencing housing insecurity, providing nutritious food for those who need it, and increasing access to healthcare and health education.
