Shepherds Hope relies on strong partnerships within the local community to ensure its services reach those most in need. Each Shepherds Hope Health Center is the result of a partnership between a faith community, school or facility partner, and hospital. The houses of faith are the primary resource for volunteer doctors, nurses and other lay volunteers who, through their faith commitment, regularly staff a health center, which typically are open several evenings each week.
Patients who are eligible for services through Shepherds Hope have income at or below 200% of the poverty level, are uninsured and not eligible for government assisted health care programs. Utilizing these criteria, Shepherds Hope has provided over 237,000 free medical visits and patient services since first opening in 1997. While health care access for the uninsured is a much discussed national priority for many Americans, Shepherds Hope is offering a faith-based model that can be replicated in local communities across the United States, bringing hope and healing to many in need.
Because all medical care is provided by volunteers, Shepherds Hope cannot guarantee that all patients will be seen. Patients who cannot be treated will be given a list of alternate providers and health centers.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Evans Shepherd's Hope Health Center, Evans High School Family Education Center website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
