If you are in need of medical or dental care and have no means to otherwise pay for it, Lighthouse Church at 1885 Anaheim Ave., Costa Mesa, is the place to be between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. Lestonnac Free Medical Clinic hosts just what its name suggests, as well as a food, live music, a children's play area and free clothing.
Ed Gerber, Lestonnac's executive director, says in an event announcement that Orange County's lack of a county hospital or public primary health care system necessitates this outreach, which is made possible through his clinic's collaboration with the Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers, Mariners Church, Stanbridge College and St. Verena Health Center.
Lestonnac Free Clinic was founded in 1979 by Sister Marie Therese.
