We share the love of Jesus by reaching out to the medically underserved. Everyone, regardless of income or situation, is entitled to adequate health care. We believe that health is defined as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. By building Christ-centered relationships, fostering trust and providing necessary tools of awareness, education, excellent medical care and assistance with mediations, we can empower persons to take responsibility for their own well-being. Our success can be measured in the life-changing words, "Lord, I believe."
The Pool is a free medical clinic serving low-income and medically underserved members of our community by providing patients with necessary tools of education, screening, access to medical care, medications and referrals to empower them to assume responsibility for their own health care . We establish no geographic boundaries. Those qualifying for participation in our program have no medical insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, and have an annual household income under 200% of the federal poverty guideline. Medical services are provided by volunteers. Other staff includes one full-time Administrative Director and a part-time intake/counselor whose salary is paid by the United Methodist Church Shreveport District.
