The Effects of COVID-19
Better Together's Partner Care Beyond the Boulevard Responds
March 19, 2020
The threat of the COVID-19 outbreak has caught the world by surprise and created many unexpected obstacles. At this time, gatherings of 10 or more people are not advised by local health officials to slow the spread of the virus. Therefore, after careful consideration, the decision has been made to postpone Better Together’s April 4 Free Health Clinic. Our hope is to return to our monthly 1st Saturdays schedule as soon as possible.

Better Together clinics are possible only because of community volunteers and partners. We join together monthly to provide medical care to KCK uninsured families.
