(KUTV) The Seager Memorial Clinic has been serving the poor and homeless in the Ogden area for almost 29 years.

"We take care of anybody who needs our services," said Ruth Brockman, the clinic's coordinator.

The clinic is housed in the Ogden Rescue Mission, and offers medical and dental care, as well as mental health services.

They will see anyone who comes into the clinic--no questions asked.

Brockman has been with the clinic since day one.

"I love it," she said of her job. "I have a passion for it."

She has seen many lives changed with these free doctor visits.

"They could not get services or these medicines if we didn't exist," she said.

The Seager Memorial Clinic runs solely on donations, whether it's money or medicines.

Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals volunteer their time to treat the patients.

"Really being able to advocate for them and have the resources here to help with that has been rewarding," said Dr. Chelsea Slade, who has been volunteering at the clinic for two and a half years.

Pre-med students and other volunteers help out as well.

Mountain America Credit Union donated $500 to the Seager Memorial Clinic.

You can donate to the clinic as well--not just money, but supplies. The clinic often gives hygiene items to patients, as well as gloves, socks, toys, and even glasses.
