Target demographics: In Boise, we serve people with no health insurance whose household income is less than twice the Federal Poverty Guidelines. For a family of 4, that's about $42,000.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Close to 1800

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Provide healthcare services to 30 patients (commensurate with healthcare background)

Geographic areas served: Ada County Idaho, Canyon County Idaho, Kenya

Programs: Garden City Community Clinic (GCCC): an integrated medical home, focuses on the holistic healing and restoring health to low-income, uninsured patients by teaching and empowering them to develop healthy life sustaining habits. All services are provided by volunteer health care professionals from throughout the community. Care includes treatment of acute non-emergent and limited chronic illnesses, medications, and referrals for specialty care. On-site basic dental services, dietitian consultations and social work visits are also offered, as well as limited mental health counseling. Volunteers apply for free medications from drug manufacturers on behalf of patients

Volunteer Physicians Network: VPN works to improve the overall health of lower-income, uninsured patients by increasing charitable access and coordination of specialty care and spreading it out among the Treasure Valley physician community. This is a referral network of specialty physicians, labs and hospitals who’ve agreed to donate medical care to patients of three Ada County safety-net clinics: Family Practice Medical Center, Terry Reilly Health Services-Boise, and GCCC. They provide primary health care and depend on specialty consultations, procedures, and/or surgery to provide a continuity of care for eligible patients.

Genesis International (GWMI): GWMI provides leadership, coordination and encouragement to sustain human health services through local and international partnerships in under-served countries. Currently, services are focused on two projects in Kenya. The first is the PEFA Mercy Medical Centre, a primary care medical home in rural Ndumberi, located outside of Nairobi. It has operated since 2007 and sees upwards of 60 patients a day, 6 days a week. Services are provided at a rate that the middle and poverty class can access. Dental services are also available.

A new project in Mombassa, along the coast, is aimed at coordinating "pocket sized" health centers and other human health services in conjunction with Touch Africa. This project is still in its investigational phase.

Mission:
We organize, operate, and inspire healthcare
solutions for people and communities in need.
Results:
Last year, we served 800 patients a year with more than 3600 patient encounters at the Garden City Community Clinic. The Volunteer Physicians Network provides over 1200 encounters for nearly 1000 patients and leverages about $1 million of donated services each year.

I have been involved with GWM from a very early stage, and in particular with the development of the Garden City Med Clinic - since about 2003. It has been a joy to participate in this fine work – a privilege to prepare the electrical design and to work with contractors, transforming a shell of a... more »

Genesis World Mission does amazing things not only for their community but internationally. Their organization is well run and VERY organized. Which, in my experience is very rare for non profits. Genesis' mission is very different from other non profits I have come across and will definitely be ... more »
