JCHC provides free health care to the working poor. Patients served at JCHC have no health insurance and lack funds to pay for health care and do not qualify for other health care programs. Last year, more than 35,000 patient visits were attended by many doctors, nurses, techs, pharmacists, and other volunteers. Many people in our communitiy do not know of the good work this clinic provides daily to our neighbors, and has for over 40 years! Please pass on the Judeo Christian Health Clinic story, volunteer, support, and become involved if you can.

The Judeo Christian Health clinic fills a very necessary void in our health care system. With love and compassion, it opens it's doors to the working poor who want to take care of their families, but can't afford the extras, which these days included their health care. As a board member I am able to see how carefully donations are spent to supply medical care, prescriptions, and dental care just to name a few. It is a godsend to our community, one that pays its bills through the generosity of those who believe in it's cause, not through government assistance. It is a shining example of what should be available to those in need across our country.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

by seeing the care that is provided to those in need on a regular basis. I am also a journalist, and put together a video for the clinic from my board member position so I was able to witness first hand the work being done by the Doctors and volunteers.

As a Judaic part of the Judeo-Christian Health Clinic I get to see Judeo-Christian principles put into action. Many of the migrant worker families and others fall through the health insurance cracks. I watch them line up outside the Clinic and know that they will be seen at no cost by the best medical practitioners, and if necessary, the best specialists Tampa has to offer. Many can also receive hospital care and surgery -all free of charge. The Clinic fulfills the Biblical command to take care of those who cannot fend for themselves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the congregation I serve as Senior Rabbi. Many of my congregants are medical professionals and the Clinic gives them volunteer opportunities. Those who offer their services are enriched and call it a religious moment when they can serve the needy.

When I was a young adult my father volunteered at teh clinic as a doctor, and later served for many years on the board. I heard for years of the hard work the volunteers did, and what services they provided for so many who could find help no where else in this community. My father had respect for the hard working patients he treated at the clinic, and was profoundly touched mby many of their life stories. When my father was dying he expressed concern that the clinic be able to continue it's mission of service to the working uninsured. When i was asked to join the board I was honored to be able to help continue a dream of service that was so important to my father. In my 2 plus years as board member I have to say that the clinic has exceptional staff, committed to providing services with respect and compassion.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen care given that has changed lives, saved lives...I have seen a line of patients waiting for services they could not receive anywhere else in our community. I have seen patients treated with courtesy, respect, and compassion.

I began over 30 years ago as a health care provider after hearing of the mission to serve those left out of the"system". Becoming a board member was a natural proces to continue the work to aid and assist those with no health benefits. Receiving no governmental support, the community of individuals, professionals, churches,and lay persons has met a need that continues today and will in the future; I am proud to be a contributor to this most worthy project.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

knowing that I have helped alleviate a patient of some of their pain and discomfort.

I started at the Judeo Clinic as an office volunteer 15 yrs. ago. We interviewed and screened patients to see if they qualified to be seen by a physician. They have to be employed, but they can only earn so much money. The time came when this needed to be a social worker position who could also speak Spanish. I then became a board member and have helped to raise money through various fund raisers, including an annual silent auction.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting some wonderful people with wide open caring hearts

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to solicit more physicians. There are always more patients than there are physicians to treat them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting such wonderful people and having a feeling of helping others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

king, caring people

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

insure that the doors would always be open, and we could help more and more people

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to serve.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

raising money to support the Clinic

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Judeo Christian Health is the greatest thing going in the Tampa Bay Area. Sick people come there when they have no other health care options.
