The Bloom Party, now in its 11th year, is the largest fundraising event for the Kansas City CARE Clinic.
The Kansas City CARE Clinic (www.kccareclinic.org), formerly known as the Kansas City Free Health Clinic, is a private, 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1971 by a group of concerned citizens from all walks of life in Kansas City. Over four decades, it has grown to become one of the largest and oldest free and charitable clinics in the country. CARE stands for Care, Access, Research and Education.
The mission of the Clinic is to promote health and wellness by providing quality services to those without access to basic care. As the face of healthcare continues to change, so, too, will the Clinic continue to adapt as it has for over forty years in order to serve Kansas Citians challenged with access to care.
