Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To provide basic medical and dental care, diagnostic services and prescription drugs to low income, uninsured residents of Brunswick County and to enhance the quality of life, while preserving the privacy and dignity of every patient.
The Affordable Care Act was implemented nationwide in 2014, yet the services of New Hope Clinic are still in great demand. H ow can this be? Most of our patients have incomes below the poverty level which makes them ineligible for subsidized insurance, yet they don’t meet the requirements for Medicaid coverage. Over 1.5 million North Carolinians still remain uninsured! We are working hard to make sure these patients, the less fortunate among us, have access to the health care they so desperately need.
New Hope Clinic has been working since 1998 to deliver a full range of quality healthcare services, including primary and specialty care, dental care, patient education, and prescription medications to low income, uninsured Brunswick County residents.
Our first year, we served 38 individuals out of a single room. Over the years, our services and patient population have continued to grow. Currently, a small staff and over 150 volunteers contribute over 10,000 volunteer hours to provide more than 5,000 patient encounters each year.
