More Than a Clinic
People might assume they know what we do here at the Refuge Clinic. What more is there to know? We’re a clinic, we provide healthcare to people. And while that’s certainly true, we are so much more than just a clinic!
All of our clinics are run by dedicated volunteers. Everyone from the doctors to the pharmacists are professionals who volunteer their time to serve the community. They allow us to provide completely free healthcare to our patients. That in itself is pretty incredible when you really think about it!
We love our patients so much that we want to go above and beyond regular healthcare to meet every need of each patient who walks through our doors. We offer counseling services to our patients who may be going through a difficult season of life and need someone to walk alongside them. We host mental health clinics where our patients can receive care for any of their mental health needs and concerns. We provide patients with transportation to and from their appointment if they are not able to do so themselves. For our patients who need specialty care, we work tirelessly to connect them with someone willing to see them for free or reduced cost.
And it doesn’t stop there! We provide our international patients with translators for their appointments, and assist them in applying for programs which provide free medication. We help them find jobs, homes, clothing, items for their house, the list goes on and on.
Our goal is to walk through life with our patients and see them to full restoration and health. Every person who walks through the doors of the Refuge Clinic is more than just a patient- each has a story, a family, and life aspirations. As the body of Christ, it’s our mission to invite them into that family and show them the same love that was so generously extended to us!
