The AMEN Boise Clinic is back for a second time after a successful first run last April. With over 800 volunteers, the clinic is offering free health care to the underinsured.

The clinic runs again Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm and Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.

"It is free folks, if you haven't been out here then you need to come and get the services that are available to you," says patient Irene Woodworth.

The AMEN Clinic was a big hit last April serving nearly 1,400 people. This year it returns for a second time around with an expectancy to serve even more people from all over.

"Regardless of who you are, regardless of whether or not you are a resident, so even our Canadian granddaughter was treated," says patient Heather Russell.

Receiving anything from a free haircut to chiropractic work to medical and dental, and some even walking away with a brand new pair of glasses.

"I had not had insurance to get my glasses and so I was so excited because I finally got my glasses, yay," says Irene.

The ultimate goal of the AMEN group is to make a difference in our own backyard.

"They're not judging anyone here today. It's obvious that everybody is welcome," says Heather.

The line was out the door and outside the gates of Expo Idaho before services even started this morning, so if you're in need of services, everyone is welcome, you'll just need to show up extra early.
