The Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic

(Wish Lists at bottom of page)

The Harriet Tubman Free Foot Clinic serves weary feet Wednesday’s from 7pm-9:30pm.  We are a collaborative care clinic, blending conventional and herbal therapies.  All services are free thanks to the help of our volunteers and donations from people like you. The foot clinic is staffed by volunteers and we can always use an extra set of hands.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the clinic coordinator.  See photos from our recent Holiday Clinic and Foot Fiesta!

The Open Door is a resident community seeking to dismantle racism, sexism and heterosexism, abolish the death penalty, and build community through loving relationships with the homeless and those who are in prison.  In addition to food services, showers, advocacy and grass roots organizing, the Open Door provides medical services to Atlantans in need, sponsoring free medical, foot, and women’s clinics.


In an effort to encourage the development of sister clinics, I have put together a manual outlining foot care procedures, with appendices on proper hygiene and safety, herbal repertory, herbal medicine making, and patient education.  Please see the “Resources” page for the most current version of this manual.  Please use this manual for the benefit of others!
