Grace Healthcare Services Corp was instrumental in establishing the initial medical clinic at GRACE Marketplace (Gainesville area shelter for those experiencing homelessness) in 2016 to provide healthcare to medically indigent individuals in the Gainesville area. The physical space is provided rent-free by the City of Gainesville. Since then, we have expanded the clinic facilities to be used by safety net clinics such as the UF Mobile Outreach Clinic, Helping Hands Clinic, Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corps and others, to provide ongoing support, equipment and supplies necessary to operate their free medical clinics.
The clinic space and supplies are used by our various safety net partner organizations for regularly scheduled medical clinics on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The clinics provide acute care and chronic disease management for hundreds of individuals who otherwise would have no access to care. Your donations will allow us to continue, and hopefully expand, the health care services provided for the poor and needy.
Grace Healthcare Services Corp has partnered with the University of Florida Mobile Outreach Clinic, Helping Hands Clinic, and Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corp to provide ongoing support, equipment and supplies necessary to operate the clinic. The clinic space and supplies are used by the various partner organizations for regularly scheduled medical clinics on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Grace Healthcare Services Clinic also supports the UF Street Psychiatry Program by providing and maintaining their medication bag for practitioner dispensing in the field.
We operate out of the premise that improving health for any segment of the population improves health and welfare for all of us.

Grace Woman's Clinic
In September of 2021, the Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corps began operating a women’s health clinic at GRACE Marketplace on the second and fourth Monday every month, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The Women’s (Only) Clinic at GRACE provides physical and mental health services for the underserved women experiencing homelessness who are living at GRACE Marketplace, unsheltered homeless women, the working poor, uninsured and other needy women in the Alachua County area. Grace Healthcare Services Corp built and maintains the facility, provides the equipment and supplies needed to run the clinics.
Approximately one third of GRACE Marketplace’s 120 residents are female. The Center on Violence Against Women, US Council of Mayors, Urban League, & National Coalition for the Homeless have each found homeless women `particularly vulnerable to sexual violence at rates as high as 92%'. Pregnant homeless women (sometimes at GRACE) experience very adverse birth outcomes.
We support the Women’s Clinic with a safe and comfortable setting, with our staffing partners the Alachua Area Medical Reserve Corps, Alachua County Department of Health, and Alachua County Victim Services providing the care. The Women’s Clinic provides general medical, gynecological, limited/initial pre-natal care with referral, and sexual assault evaluation with onsite counseling and advocacy by Alachua County Victim Services/Rape Crisis Center staff.
