Mission: We share the love of Jesus by reaching out to the medically underserved. Everyone, regardless of income or situation, is entitled to adequate health care. We believe that health is defined as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. By building Christ-centered relationships, fostering trust and providing necessary tools of awareness, education, excellent medical care and assistance with mediations, we can empower persons to take responsibility for their own well-being. Our success can be measured in the life-changing words, "Lord, I believe."
Programs: We provide basic medical care to adults with no insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. Our services include our medical clinic, dental clinic, women's health clinic, diabetic eye clinic, and counseling. In 2007, there were 997 appointments for patients in our clinic. Additionally, we provided approximately 1,000 other services, including the Patient Assistance Program as well as information and referrals.
Volunteering with the Pool of Siloam Medical Ministry has been a truly inspirational, rewarding and fulfilling experience. I feel very blessed to be a part of an organization that is able to take in those individuals that feel like they have no place left to turn when it comes to their chronic health problems. Looking into their eyes and listening to their personal stories is in itself a heart-warming gift. Seeing the confidence and satisfaction on their faces when they realize they are now in control of their own health is a life-changing experience.
