Medical

Hope’s medical clinics provide free primary care to uninsured and under-insured patients. Last year, there were more than 3,300 patient visits between our two clinics. Medical services are provided almost entirely by our dedicated clinical volunteers.

Donations and grants enable us to provide certain medications to our patients, onsite and at no cost. In 2017 we provided over $810,000 worth of medically necessary prescriptions. Hope works directly with pharmaceutical companies’ Medication Assistance Programs to obtain free medication for patients that qualify financially.

Many patients receive care from our network of specialty care providers. Patients are seen at Hope and at our clinical partner locations and area hospitals. Area hospitals partner with Hope to provide discounted lab and radiology services for qualified patients enabling us to closely monitor chronic medical conditions.

Hegira Programs, Inc. conducts S-BIRT assessments at both clinics, screening for substance use, depression and anxiety. Behavioral health is available on a limited basis.


Dental

The Dental Clinic seeks to offer quality dental care to those in need offering:

  • Cleanings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Limited referrals for specialty needs

Eligibility is based on family size and income. Proof of income and photo ID are required.  We are unable to see patients with any form of dental insurance.


Food

True to our commitment in supporting the whole person, our resources for day-to-day necessities go well beyond your typical food bank option. Here’s what we you need to know: 

  • We offer an incredible food pantry that allows our clients access to some of the best selection in south-east Michigan. 
  • Clients can also shop free at our own farm stand with fresh produce always in rotation. There’s even cooking demonstrations to help clients learn how to prepare the foods at home.
  • Then, there is also dinner prepared and served on site each and every Saturday and Sunday. 

We served up nearly 15,000 food requests and warm meals last year. We would love to serve you with any meal needs you might have.

Care and Prayer


We do everything in our power to make it possible for each client to receive basic needs, by offering support and connecting clients with necessary resources within the community.

Our mission is to provide compassionate and practical help to those with needs, while ministering to them with care, dignity and respect; we help each individual…to give them Hope.

Social Work

A few of the services offered through the Social Work Department at Hope Center include:

  •  Compassionate support and patient advocacy.
  • Assistance with financial resources such as legal ID, clothes vouchers, prescription copays and bus tokens.
  • Counseling, support groups and referrals for behavioral health services
  • Financial support for legal ID and bus token for medical appointments
  • Aid with online applications for health insurance and other entitlement programs.
  • Connecting clients with outside resources within the community

The Social Work Department also works to serve the community by hosting a series of special events, such as our Backpack Give-Away Program in August, our Get Fit Club in March and the Christmas Adopt-A-Family in December -- as well as fun events for men and women (Game Night) --and support groups for depression, anxiety, grief starting in 2019. Sign Up sheets are available for each event. Participants can sign up at the reception desk.  A few services require proof of family size.

Wash with Care

We offer a free laundry facility on site.

 

We know these aren’t “small things” but rather the kind of resources that can truly empower clients in managing their day-to-day practical needs. It helps clients better stretch their resources, and that can make the difference in being able to thrive beyond just keeping up with the day-to-day.

 

But, there have also been thousands of loads of laundry or baby care guests, as well. Ask around in the community, and you’ll also hear that we are known for making all of this available with a sense of compassion and encouragement which ensures dignity in the process. And, we know it helps to have all of these resources available at one place, easily accessible in the community - Right along side the free medical and dental clinics, and even social worker support options. We’re THE resource working to strengthen and minister to the whole person in our community.

We hope that if you have a need you will visit us. It will be empowering.

And, we hope if you can help support our mission that you’ll consider donating or volunteering if you are able. It is a powerful way to make a difference in our community.
