Since 1968, community support has provided care with dignity to residents of Montgomery County, Indiana.

Montgomery County Free Clinic, Inc., was established in 2009 when Christian Nursing Service (CNS), a free clinic since 1968, invited collaborators from Franciscan Health Crawfordsville and other community stakeholders to meet to determine how to provide medical and dental care for uninsured people in our community. The outcome of those meetings was a new organization, independent of the Christian Nursing Service, with only a board and no members. In the fall of 2009, the Montgomery County Free Clinic Board incorporated and received 501(c)(3) status. We also became an affiliate clinic of the national Volunteers in Medicine organization.


As a Volunteers in Medicine organization in Indiana, we cultivate a “Culture of Caring” for community members. We are a 501(c)(3) corporation organized to provide medical and dental services to uninsured residents of Montgomery County who meet 300 percent of federal poverty guidelines, in addition to providing Meals on Wheels to local residents. The Dr. Mary Ludwig Free Clinic was remodeled and equipped from individual contributions and a grant from North Central Health Services. Ongoing care is supported by members of the Montgomery County community.
