GFCFS programs have been a safety net for our community since 1952. GFCFS exists to provide basic human needs—food, shelter, health care, and clothing—for Goochland residents who are vulnerable and lack adequate resources.

Our vision is for a healthy Goochland Community where all residents, regardless of circumstances, have:

  • Access to health care (medical, dental, and mental health)
  • Enough food to feed their families
  • Safe and stable housing
  • Clothing they need for school and work

Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition

In July 2015, Goochland Free Clinic received Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition from The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long‐term, participative relationships between the patient and healthcare providers. GFCFS is one of only two free clinics in Virginia to achieve this prominent recognition, which is awarded nationally to medical practices meeting the highest of standards for patient care. NCQA is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health care quality.

SEI designation

In August 2016, Goochland Free Clinic & Family Services achieved the Service Enterprise designation awarded by the Points of Light Foundation. A Service Enterprise is “an organization that fundamentally leverages volunteers and their skills across all levels of the organization to successfully deliver on its social mission”. Approval requires an application, diagnostic survey, training, action plan and site visit. Only 15% of non-profits nationwide achieve the Service Enterprise designation. Points of Light is the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service.




Our mission is to provide access to health care and basic human services to Goochland County residents who are in need of assistance.



GFCFS is the only organization in Goochland that provides a safety net for those needing assistance with immediate food, housing, health, safety, and other basic needs.
