Most homeless and working poor do not have reliable access to basic medical care because they are uninsured or simply cannot afford to pay to see a doctor, dentist or optometrist when health concerns arise.
Medical help is available at hospitals in the case of life threatening emergencies, but symptomatic and preventive health care is out of reach for low-income families or those with no insurance.
Unfortunately, many serious or life-threatening health concerns, like hypertension, diabetes and heart disease, go unattended.
The Good News Health Clinic offers free medical care, we also accepting donations to cover the cost of lab tests and over-the-counter or prescription medications.
Good News Health Clinic is a community health center, and its services include primary physician care, health screenings, lab tests, disease management, medications, immunizations, health education, specialty referrals and treatment follow-up. Dental and eye care assistance are also available.
Our staff and volunteers strive to improve the quality of life for the poor and afflicted of the inner-city. Through the health care process, we also take opportunities to share God’s love, comfort and promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
