Shepherd's Hope is a non-profit, faith-based organization of volunteers that exists to provide access to health care for the uninsured.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit In 2012, more than 20,000 patient visits and medical services were provided, and we expect that number to increase despite healthcare reform. Thankfully, committed volunteers from faith communities across Central Florida are volunteering at record levels. Over 2,000 doctors, nurses and general volunteers have answered the call to help people who are sick and have nowhere to turn, and since opening our doors in 1997, Shepherd's Hope has provided over 150,000 free patient visits and medical services to our neighbors in need. Although we pray for the day when all people who are sick have a place to turn, we also know that there will always be gaps in services for the poor. It is universally agreed that even with healthcare reform, millions of men, women and children will remain without medical coverage. Shepherd's Hope is a vital provider for those who need our careónow and in the future. The primary goal of Shepherd's Hope is to increase access to basic healthcare services for uninsured, low-income individuals who do not qualify for government-assisted healthcare. However, Shepherd's Hope patients often present to us in an advanced state of illness, resulting in an increased need for specialty care. Many Shepherd's Hope patients have been found to have abnormal results in their free diagnostic tests. As these numbers rose, the number of patients denied services by secondary care providers also increased. To address the gap, Shepherd's Hope began recruiting specialists. Some donate their services at specialty clinics within Shepherd's Hope walls while others are community-based services provided in physicians' offices. Shepherd's Hope currently offers limited specialty care in our Longwood Clinic and now seeks to expand this critical need to our other clinics. By building on the existing collaborations and resources already in place, specialty care can be added to the continuum of services in a cost effective manner. The time is right to expand our specialty care.
