First Parish has been supporting the MetroWest Free Medical Program, a nonprofit organization that engages volunteer healthcare providers to offer physical and mental health services to those who are uninsured and underinsured. Until recently, First Parish provided space for the health program. The Adult Medecine and Women’s Health Clinics programs are now located in Marlborough at 246 Maple Street, Suite 1, and the vision program is hosted by Lexington Eye Associates at 534 Boston Post Road in Sudbury. 

Volunteers at the MetroWest Free Medical Program provide services to about 1,300 patients through more than 1800 visits, annually. The program operates on a small budget and is supported by corporate and foundation grants and individual donations. The First Parish congregation supports the work of the MetroWest Free Medical Program with many active volunteers and an annual financial contribution from the Share-the-Plate program. This is truly a community program!
