About the SSJ Health Foundation

Charitable organization providing financial support for St. John Bosco Clinic, a free clinic serving uninsured and underserved children and adults in Miami-Dade County.


Our Mission

To provide compassionate and philanthropic support for the health care ministry of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of St. Augustine, Florida, to the uninsured and underserved in the Miami-Dade community.


Vision

To preserve the enduring presence of the St. John Bosco Clinic in Miami-Dade County as long as there are underserved children and adults without access to healthcare.

  • “I thank St. John Bosco Clinic for the invaluable help they have offered me and my family through their generosity without any cost to us. Health has such an impact on all people and for those of us who seek care at the clinic we are grateful for the care, the understanding, the patience and the support the clinic and its personnel and volunteers offer us with courtesy and dedication.”
  • "I feel that a lot of people helped me get to where I am today so it is only right that I help others in the best way possible. It energizes me to work with a group of motivated individuals focused on how to improve the health of others."

  • “St. John Bosco Clinic has been of great help to me.  Here I have been received with kindness and respect. All staff works with love and professionalism. It is a blessing to have the services offered by St. John Bosco Clinic in our community.”
  • “I support St John Bosco Clinic in its mission to care for those most vulnerable in our community. Respecting the dignity of those most in need, and the right to basic healthcare, builds a community marked with hope and justice and humanity.”

  • “God bless the clinic and all those who work behind the scenes and through their financial support, time and effort without expecting anything in return make this possible…blessings.”
  • “South Florida’s immigrant population is the backbone of our community. This important group is underserved and underrepresented. The St John Bosco Clinic gives me the opportunity to support an organization that helps care for our neighbors in need by providing lifesaving healthcare at no cost to them.”

St. John Bosco Clinic


At St. John Bosco Clinic those served have different life stories, faces, and nationalities. They are the young, old, working poor and the unemployed, but they share one very similar need; the need for healthcare and difficulty meeting that need for themselves and their families. St. John Bosco Clinic is solely funded through the generosity of our community partners, and philanthropic individuals, corporations, and foundations that recognize the great need in our community and the true difference their support can make.
