Shepherd’s Clinic Food Drive: August 19th – September 13th

August 8, 2019

To help meet the ongoing needs of our patients, Shepherd’s Clinic will be compiling bags of food items for patients and their families who may be facing food insecurity. Please consider donating healthy, non-perishable meal items to our food drive to help feed our community. Because many patients also live with chronic health concerns, we kindly ask that items are low in sugar and sodium. In addition to food items, the clinic will also accept: multivitamins, Metamucil, vitamin D3 1000IU, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, and Lubriderm or Cera Ve body lotion. Items will be accepted from Mon, August 19th - Fri, September 13th. Items may be dropped off at the Front Desk.FoodDriveFlyer

Important News Re: Fire and Temporary Closure

April 15, 2019

UPDATE: We have exciting news! As of Saturday, May 11th, our clinic space has officially re-opened and is fully functioning. And starting  Monday May 13th, the Joy Wellness Center is officially re-opened. This timeline is earlier than we originally anticipated, all thanks to the contractors who have been working tirelessly to get the space ready for us.  We are so happy to be back and fully providing services in our space again in such a short amount of time. Now that we are back, we are working to confirm what the financial toll of the fire was. Our goal is that our annual fundraiser (scheduled for June 28th, cityhealthfuture2019.eventbrite.com) will help us to raise any outstanding dollars to meet our budget for the year. Thank you to everyone who has offered us support! On 4/11/19, there was an electrical fire at the clinic caused by a dryer. In good news, no one was injured and the building infrastructure is safe. However, due to health risks from smoke contamination, the building is required to close for approximately 30 days. Thank you to our beloved community for your support as we have developed a plan. The clinic has partnered with Youth Dreamers to set up a ...
