    My mother-in-law just came to live with us suddenly due to a domestic abuse situation. She lived on the Oregon Coast where they had a lot of free clinics and was in the process of getting a root canal for almost no money; she has no insurance. So, she needs some dental work done and also is in need of counseling to help her deal with the abuse, etc. I’m wondering if anyone knows of resources that offer low/no cost services for medical, dental, and counseling.

    Even a lead would be very much appreciated as I don’t even know where to begin!

    Thanks!

    You might also try the dental programs at Ohio State or Columbus State.

    Also, ask your own dentist. He may be willin to make a deal for her if you are a long time customer

    The city’s operating budget includes funding for the network called Columbus Neighborhood Health Centers (colnhc dot org). CNHC does fantastic work in our community.

    If your MIL faced domestic violence, consider getting her connected with Choices (ChoicesColumbus dot org)

    In general, the Columbus human services hotline ‘211’ is ‘Hands On Central Ohio.’

    Columbus has some top notch free clinics, most of them staffed by OSU employees and students. The chair of one of the medical programs spends three days a week staffing a free clinic.

    I was actually so impressed with the free clinics that one is my primary medical provider. Not because I get it free, we have insurance. But it does help fund the clinic when they get paying customers.

    I know you can get free mental health counseling by final year students who are supervised. Contact OSU

    Are you certain that those are for non-students? All of the free counseling resources on campus that I am aware of are only available to currently enrolled students.

    OSU’s Marriage and Family Therapy doctoral program has a sliding scale fee-based clinic available to anyone.
