Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM) is also known locally as The Founders Clinic. CVIM's medical clinic opperates on volunteer medical and support staff, and serves adults with no medical insurance (who are often working but still below the income guidelines), whose medical condition is too serious to wait for the next access appointment (such as is often true of the VA), or whose insurance doesn't cover basic primary care services (such as catastrophic insurance that only covers emergency care). CVIM provides Spanish language interpreters.
