This month’s message from Oasis Free Clinics 

At Oasis, our mission is to strengthen our community by providing no-cost medical, dental and prescription assistance services to our uninsured neighbors in need. We serve adults with low-income adults living in the towns of Freeport, Brunswick, Harpswell, Orrs and Bailey Islands, Durham, and all of Sagadahoc County.

Oasis does not receive state nor federal funding. We are supported by the generosity of individuals, businesses, churches, local towns, foundations, and the United Way of Mid Coast Maine.

At Oasis, we believe access to health care is a human right and that it is our role to serve those who fall through the cracks of traditional health systems. Oasis was created almost 30 years ago because there was a gap in the healthcare system – there was no place for those experiencing homelessness to receive free care easily.

Oasis Free Clinics

Many of our patients work two or three jobs but can’t get health insurance through their employer or can’t afford it on their own. We often serve people who have fallen on difficult times – lost a job, lost a home, or gotten sick. Any of us can encounter these types of struggles; Oasis is here to ensure our neighbors receive the care they need.

The Medical Clinic provides adult wellness and prevention visits, women’s health and wellness visits, sick care, chronic disease care, limited mental health counseling services, and referrals to specialty care. Currently the medical clinic serves 500 patients.

The Dental Clinic addresses the oral health needs of our uninsured medical patients including conducting patient intake and health history, taking dental x-rays, doing fillings, providing dental cleanings, restorations, extractions, some oral surgery, and endodontics.

The Community Prescription Assistance Program assists uninsured and underinsured members throughout our community in obtaining free medications through pharmaceutical patient assistance programs. We help people with the complicated application process to receive life-saving medications. Last year, we helped get over $1.1 million in free medications.
