Compassion Mini Clinics Health Volunteer Registration


Although the Affordable Care Act has increased access to healthcare for thousands across the country, it has not solved the issue of affordable and accessible healthcare for all.

Thousands of uninsured, underinsured, and insured people who are unable to find a primary care home continue to seek treatment for non-emergency needs by utilizing the Emergency Departments.  As a result billions of dollars of unnecessary spending each year happens at Emergency Departments while many go without care at all due to the lack of accessibility.  Overall, this gap in accessible healthcare for the most vulnerable is one that begs to be addressed.

Compassion Mini Clinics aim to ignite and equip local churches, volunteers, and community health care professionals to collaborate in service to their neighbors.  These include those who are slipping through the cracks of accessible healthcare.  Compassion Mini Clinics provide a strategically located and compassionately designed mini-clinic model that will result in:

  • Decrease non-emergent Emergency Department visits
  • Increased access to primary care for those who need it most
  • Growth of vibrant new relationships between the Church and the Community
