About Sharon Community Clinic:
People who make too much money to qualify for Medicaid or CHIPS but not enough to pay for medicine and doctor visits, as well as people who work hard for a living to make ends-meet until they have to go to the doctor are those who have inspired our church (Sharon Baptist Church
) to begin a free medical clinic. Established in October of 2008, Sharon Community Clinic continues to operate on the second Saturday of every month at 9 A.M. A group of volunteers, including a doctor and various other medical providers, meet together and turn Sunday School rooms into patient exam rooms and work rooms that provide free care for the people in our community. We live in a rural setting a little off the beaten path; however, by word-of-mouth people are finding out about our clinic. Although we do accept donations from outside sources, we do not ask or expect payment from our clients. The only services that clients are asked to pay for are lab tests and x-rays, which are optional and discounted at about 90%. These costs are exactly what the clinic is charged. We request that our clients have no Medicare or Medicaid and have low income. We treat persons of all ages and are listed with the United Way which you can access by dialing 2-1-1 on your telephone. We can also help clients with resource referrals to other local ministries or services available to the community. It is our ministry to help our community by providing health care for those who cannot afford it. But more than that, we want the chance to mention our Healer and Comforter’s name and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
