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 30 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.
