Don't miss all the news and updates coming from our clinic!
We've closed out 2018! It typically takes a month or two to scan all lingering 2018 paperwork and crunch the numbers. We've finished rounding out 2018 and we sure have made an impact!
In 2018, our clinic provided 1,894 services for patients and 1,585 of them were at NO COST to the patient.
This would not have been possible without your support all year long. Thank you to everyone who helped us serve our patients. While we're impressed with what we've accomplished this year, we're looking to breeze by the 2,000 services mark next year. We're hoping you can once again help us accomplish this goal.

Have you stopped by clinic lately?! Maybe you should! We recently got free road and parking signage donated to the clinic. The signs look absolutely fantastic and now we're able to better promote our new location. We love our new home at Epworth UMC and we want everyone to know we're here!
Don't forget we're helping with taxes again this year! Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center has wonderful volunteers who are assisting with tax preparations. All tax preparations are FREE and appointments are still available!
Want to see if you qualify for free tax preparation assistance? Want to schedule your tax preparation appointment? Give us a call at 614-262-5094.
