Without this clinic in our neighborhood many people, young and old, would go untreated. Started by a school nurse who saw a need, it serves hundreds of patients who can not afford healthcare. It is staffed by many volunteers as well as a small paid staff. You only need to volunteer in the clinic one day to see the wonderful things that it has done for the patients. It offers both medical and dental care. It is a true blessing to many!
My children grew up in our neighborhood public schools and through that experience our family witnessed the challenges of many of their classmates' families to secure food, clothing, and a place to live. Medical care takes a back seat to these basic needs. To help children and adults who are unable to afford both preventive and critical health care, Healing Hands Ministries was created through the vision of a former school nurse in our community and many supportive volunteers. Now our neighbors can see a doctor or a dentist for an amount they can afford and by driving or walking only a mile or two from home. Healing Hands makes me proud to be a part of the Lake Highlands community!
A six year old health clinic providing medical care for those who have no health coverage is an
inspiring ministry. To be a member of its Board provides incentive and encouragement to aid
the progress of the Clinic in ministering to those in need in our community.
The Director, volunteers, and staff are dedicated and skilled in their work and bring a continuum of
care to our patients.
Because I volunteer at the Clinic. I see first hand how many peeople are helped by this organization. The medical professionals who give their time are a special breed and that makes the Clinic that much more valuable. Without the Clinic, many people would not be able to afford or get the medical care they need. The patients are always early for their appointments and very appreciative for the care. It provides a great service to our community and a great way for our community to serve.
Healing Hands is a wonderful place that I would be very sick without them. I have diabetes and I cannot afford my medicine. They help me to see the doctor for a low amount and helped me get my insulin for no cost on a patient program. They treat me with respect. The make me feel important. I am so thankful for them.
