THE SLIFER SMITH & FRAMPTON FOUNDATION 

An integral part of calling Summit County home is supporting our community. Over the past decade, we have given over $300,000 in donations. We gladly support these organizations that make our area the very best place to live. 

Spotlight on:

SUMMIT COMMUNITY CARE CLINIC


Summit Community Care Clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Center and the only safety net clinic in the Summit County and neighboring community area. We offer high-quality primary care, oral health, behavioral health, and reproductive health services to our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
We have been recognized locally, state-wide and nationally for our integrated care model, and for the high quality of care that we provide.

Summit Community Care Clinic was established in 1993 as a one night a week walk-in clinic staffed entirely by volunteers. It has grown immensely over the past few decades, becoming a fully Federally Qualified Health Center in 2015.

SCCC believes that for a person to reach their optimum well-being, you must treat their mind, body and soul. This model has driven them to include behavioral and oral health into our available services.

Summit County has one of the highest rates of uninsured citizens in the state of Colorado, with 22% of community members unable to afford health insurance. Similarly, cultural and linguistic differences can create significant barriers to accessing care.  The Care Clinic addresses these barriers by offering all health services in English and Spanish.

In addition to their clinic on the first floor at the Medical Center in Frisco, the newest addition to SCCC is their state of the art Dental office on the third floor.  Additionally, their School Based Health Centers program provides quality primary care, oral health and behavioral health services to Summit students and staff at four sites in Summit Schools.

Yearly, SCCC throws an annual party in March called SOUP for the SOUL, BREAD for the CLINIC!  This fundraiser is a night of dinner, drinks and supporting the work of the clinic. All funds donated on this night are passed on directly to the patients. A wonderful event, enjoy the photos taken by our SSF in-house photographer, who attended this year:
