What does Hope Clinic do?
Hope Clinic provides compassionate and practical help to those in need. We offer medical care and dental care to the uninsured, plus a variety of social services to minister to the whole person.

How did Hope Clinic come about?
Hope Clinic was founded over 35 years ago by Dr. Dan Heffernan as an expression of his Christian faith. Dr. Dan started with a Saturday morning clinic in borrowed space to serve those without medical insurance and from there Hope has grown to what it is today. See more about our history and milestones.

How successful is Hope Clinic?
In 2017 we provided 3,317 medical visits, 3,874 dental visits, filled nearly $810,771 worth of prescriptions, served 5,422 hot meals, and filled 8,733 requests for groceries and produce. We also minister to the spiritual needs of those we serve through prayer. Read more in our annual reports, 990 financial documents, newsletters, and more publications.

How can we serve so many?
Hope is blessed with an amazing group of volunteers including over 100 medical and dental professionals each month who provide care and hundreds of other volunteers who help with everything from food distribution to administrative duties, serve as prayer partners and more. Over 35,000 volunteer hours were invested in serving and caring for our clients and patients in 2017.
