We primarily target federally designated health professions shortage areas and medically under served areas.
CURRENTLY WE ARE in Discussions or BUILDING CLINICS IN the following CHURCHES:
Our initial clinics will be built at St John Baptist Church, Fairhaven AME Church and Wayman Memorial AME Church located in Columbia Maryland and Baltimore City, respectively. Fairhaven AME Church and Wayman Memorial AME Church are situated in federally designed Healthcare Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) and/or Medically Underserved Areas (MUA). This means that there is a severe lack of doctors, high infant mortality rate and high poor or elderly population. Many of the residents suffer from chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease which is in large part due to lack of access to healthcare. Drug use is rampant and homelessness is pervasive.

Benefit to the Community

They will be open on the weekends when traditional doctors' offices are closed and provide access to affordable healthcare which the community desperately needs. Since the churches are conveniently located and fully integrated into their communities, they are a trusted place to receive care by their congregations and the surrounding communities.
