Organization Information

Mission Statement

To promote the health and wellbeing of the local population by providing accessible, high-quality medical care for expectant mothers and infants under 12 months of age. We are committed to providing accessible, relationship-based services that will exceed the expectations of our patients and their communities resulting in an effective great compassion and great commission ministry.

Description

Low-income mothers desperately need quality prenatal care to learn how to care for themselves and their growing babies. And yet, this is the group of mothers most likely not to get prenatal care, sometimes even showing up in labor at the hospital ER never having seen a doctor.

The Luke Clinic wants to meet these women where they are by coming to their communities to provide care. Our desire is to bring accessible, relationship-based prenatal and infant care right into the poorest neighborhoods. By setting up rooms for prenatal visits at local churches the clinic accomplishes another important goal of connecting new mothers with churches and local ministries that provide the long-term counseling and support needed, particularly for young mothers in difficult circumstances.
