The Hope Clinic is a free health care clinic located in the city of Jasper in Walker County, Alabama. It is a private, non-profit community based organization that provides health care and prescription medicines at no charge to low-income Walker County residents who do not have health care insurance, or who do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid coverage.
