Displaced workers may call ahead or walk in to the clinic (7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.). If they bring in their most recent pay stubs and photo ID, and fill out new-patient packets, they can be seen at no charge. Learn more at 3810 Kern Road in Yakima – (509) 228-7237.

Together, we will ensure every affected worker can access the resources available to continue supporting ourselves and our families.
