Mission: Nonprofit religious corporation exclusively for religious purposes, not for private gain of any person.
Programs: Community wellness center--we made incredible strides in the construction of our 6,400 sq. Ft. Wellness center in the heart of our community in 2017. Construction began just two years ago, and the completion of the project and dedication of the new facility is scheduled for july 2018. One of the highlights of the year was moving into the new clinic wing in september 2017. The vastly more efficient and spacious facility means a greater number of patients can be seen--during the first 30 days of operation we attended to nearly 300 patients. We have partnered with strong tower ministries, a u. S. Based non-profit, to manage the construction of the wellness center and oversee volunteer labor groups. During spring and summer 2017, more than 15 volunteer groups donated their time onsite. When completed the wellness center will be owned by the fundacion comunitaria siloe, a mexican foundation.
siloe ministries is a non-profit christian organization serving in la mision, baja california and other poor communities in mexico. We provide needy families with free health education, medical care and spiritual support in the name of jesus christ. We run a small community clinic in la mision, and host medical missions teams. Our medical staff is paid through the fundacion comunitaria siloe based in mexico. General patient fund--in 2017, the expansion of our medical and dental services continued. Not only did we see more patients, but the caliber and range of care we were able to provide continued to improve. We added a new dentist to our team, as well as regular ultrasonography consultations. Our partnerships with visiting specialists continued in 2017.
outreach fund--as in previous years, we hosted a number of outreach events, primarily in three migrant agricultural communities where we have longstanding relationships. These included our annual christmas parties in rancho viejo and medano, where families receive a hot holiday meal, and all childen in attendance receive individualized wrapped gifts. Other outreach events in 2017 included a medical outreach to the haitian migrant community of tijuana, where more than 200 patients were seen.
