“As my parents’ primary caregiver, I gave up my business and in the process neglected my own health. Thanks to Shepherd’s Hope and their volunteer doctors, I was able to get the care I needed with more dignity and respect than I could have ever imagined. Now I’m able to find work and build toward the future I know is possible.” — John
Individuals just like John, who is pictured here with his sister Paula and his mother Fern, are forced with making difficult choices every day: put food on the table, pay the bills, buy clothes for their children, or pay for medical care they are unable to afford.
Thankfully, because of your support, the volunteer medical professionals at Shepherd’s Hope give individuals, families and oftentimes our neighbors hope and healing each night at our five health centers when they open their doors and greet each patient with open arms.
The historic events of these past few months have brought a new urgency: unemployment rates in Central Florida are skyrocketing adding to the already exorbitant numbers of the uninsured. The need for telehealth services is in as much demand as our face-to-face patient services and our need to expand our technology capabilities is essential.
