 We Are Vermont Health Connect Navigators

The People’s Health & Wellness Clinic (PHWC) serves central Vermonters who don’t have health insurance, or whose insurance doesn’t cover what they need.  We provide primary health care and wellness education, plus oral health, mental health, and massage therapy.  Our services are free, but donations are always welcome.

We can also help you get health coverage.  Our Vermont Health Connect Navigators are trained to help you apply for a health plan that meets your needs and budget.  Open Enrollment begins November 1, but if you qualify for Medicaid/Dr. Dynasaur you can enroll year-round. You may also be able to sign up outside of Open Enrollment.

Whatever your health care or health coverage needs, we are here to help you.  Call (802) 479-1229 for information and appointments.

Our Mission

The People’s Health & Wellness Clinic’s mission is to provide primary health care and wellness education to the uninsured and underinsured community members of Central Vermont who cannot otherwise afford these services.

What Our Patients Say

My family relies on this clinic and has for years. We feel cared about. That means a lot.

I moved here with health problems and had no where to go and needed help. You folks made me feel at home and cared for me.

I didn’t go to the doctors much because I didn’t feel respected. Here at the clinic I feel important.

Certainly, the clinic helped me get my medications and my health screenings.
