Clinic Details: The Community of Hope Health Clinic (CHHC) is a medical mission in Shelby County that provides non-emergent medical care to Shelby County adults who have no health insurance and whose household income is at or below 200% of the poverty level. The Clinic opened its doors on October 16, 2008 after entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Shelby County Health Department for use of their building on Thursday evenings. We have two part-time paid positions, the Executive Director and an Administrative Assistant. Other than these two positions the CHHC is totally manned by volunteers. We utilize volunteers from the following disciplines: physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and interpreters. We continue to receive a huge in-kind value provided by our many volunteers. We also have physicians in the area who provide pro bono medical care for referrals that we make. The eligibility criteria are: You must live in Shelby County and provide verification of this (ex: utility bill); You must not have ANY health insurance at all; You must be between the ages of 19 and 64; You must be at or below 200% of the poverty level based on total household gross monthly income (HH 1 can have $1805; HH of 2 can have $2,428; HH of 3, $3,052; HH of 4, $3,675; HH of 5, $4,298). Income verification can be a paystub, an award letter for Disability or Unemployment Compensation, a statement from the person who might be currently supporting you. If you are on Food Stamps, you automatically meet our financial guidelines.
