We are proud to share that the Fauquier Free Clinic celebrated 30 years of providing essential healthcare to those in need this year. Over the last three decades, your generosity has directly improved the health of thousands of people in the region.

The Fauquier Free Clinic serves the Fauquier and Rappahannock communities by providing comprehensive medical, dental and mental health care to eligible residents. Making essential healthcare services more accessible to all is our ongoing mission.

Every dollar donated to the Fauquier Free Clinic generates over $6.00 in health care services essential for our community. We are continuously striving to grow and improve our quality of care. We are grateful for all of our donors, patrons and community partners who are united in their desire to give back to the communities we serve. 

Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 8th will be increased with additional "bonus" dollars generously provided by the PATH Foundation and prize dollars from sponsors. We greatly appreciate all donations! 

About Our 2023 Expansion Project

This past year, we successfully completed the renovations of our dental facilities. Thanks to the generosity of our partners, we’ve covered the costs of renovations and the acquisition of cutting-edge equipment. We doubled the number of dental treatment rooms from four to eight and expanded our capacity from 300 patients to 500 patients monthly. You can watch our virtual tour below. 

Our women’s preventive care service has been full every week since its inception. For many, this marks the first time in decades, if not their entire lives, that they’ve received such vital care. Our leadership is already considering how to fund and support opening up to care for more local women.

A Patient's Story

Our physical health is a very delicate thing—when we have it, we rarely think about it, but it can consume our lives when things go wrong. Debbie Rowland, a 62-year-old New Jersey native who moved to Virginia in 2013, recently went through several health crises, and found a caring, professional team of health experts in the Fauquier Free Clinic.

“The quality of care at the clinic is truly unmatched,” says Debbie. “It’s not about just treating you when you’re sick; it's about saving lives. I certainly wouldn’t be here to tell my story without Dr. Shepherd’s intervention and quick diagnosis."

Initially, Debbie came to the clinic seeking help for a family member managing a chronic illness. Then her own health took a sudden turn and led her back to the clinic’s doors—a decision she now calls “the best move I ever made.” She arrived at the clinic with multiple health issues. Debbie credits the clinic, particularly Dr. Shepherd, for not just saving her life but for giving her the courage to fight for it.

In 2020, when Debbie encountered a complicated infection that required hospitalization, Dr. Shepherd quickly intervened and helped her sort out an effective treatment plan that put her back on a stable path and averted a potentially serious health crisis. But Debbie’s challenges continued. In December 2021, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks in large part to Dr. Shepherd’s insistence on an overdue mammogram, the cancer was discovered at stage II. Within a week of her diagnosis, the free clinic had Debbie under the care of Virginia Cancer Specialists and underwent 16 months of treatment. This April, Debbie will celebrate one year being cancer-free, a milestone she is thrilled to reach and plans to celebrate. 

Debbie's story is just one example of the crucial role the Fauquier Free Clinic plays in our community. The clinic provides important medical care, screening services, and offers a protective support system that empowers patients in their darkest times. "I thank my lucky stars every day for the Fauquier Free Clinic,” says Debbie. “They didn’t just save my life—they gave me a family and a future.”
