A couple years efore becoming a board member, I was invited to several fundraisers and information sessions about the clinic and helps a couple times with the clinic tear-down. At these fundraisers I graciously was introduced to all of the board and community members who made the clinic possible and was invited to help with the clinic when and where I could. I originally volunteered on the finance committee. I had taken a step back for a year and a half, and was approached by a board member asking if I could or knew of anyone who would be a good Treasurer for the organization. The board is nothing short of amazing for its diverse ideas and thoughts. Everyone is willing to put in the extra effort and time for the organization, and the number of people whom we help brings a smile to my face, especially those who desperately needed service and could not find or afford it anywhere else. The volunteers are all top notch professionals who are gracious and treat everyone equally. This is truly one unique organization with a golden heart to do what is best for our community. Finally, for the number of people we help, the cost is very low. Many people slowly get better and start to improve their lives.
Review from Guidestar
This group (13 Board Members and a host of Friends of the Board) has created a FREE medical clinic in 2 years! We are going to open this August as a set up/tear down site until our building is renovated (probably November). We will offer medical care, dispense generic medicaions, benefits counseling and resources, mental health consultation and basic lab testing. We enjoy great local community support....the need is great. The closest free clinics are 12 miles away.
