Mission Statement

Siloam's statement of mission is to share the love of Christ by serving those in need through health care.

Description

Siloam was chartered in 1990 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit to live out the Biblical and historical commitment of the Church to care for the poor and the sick. As a primary health care center, Siloam's purpose is to provide affordable, high-quality health care to the uninsured and those who slip through the health care system because of time, money and language barriers. Eighty percent (80%) of our patients are refugees and immigrants - Vietnamese, Hispanic, Kurdish, Albanian, Sudanese and others. Most face significant language barriers. Affordable health care becomes a reality for Siloam's patients because of the financial support from individuals, churches and foundations and due to more than 200 dedicated volunteers who serve as physicians, nurses, translators and supporters. Our volunteers represent more than 50 churches and all major hospitals. As our volunteers and staff reach out to an underserved population, we see our efforts impacting the cycle of poverty. Instead of poverty bringing sickness and sickness bringing poverty, we provide an opportunity for health and a message of hope.
