Why we need your help


Even with healthcare reform, hundreds of thousands of people in need are still left out of the system who are passed over, ignored and neglected.

They suffer with chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart problems. They struggle with illnesses that linger for months and years. They live with injuries that are left to heal on their own.

They can’t work, they can’t take care of themselves, and they can’t care for their families. Suddenly, “low income” turns into poverty, and then desperate poverty, until they’re at the cliff of homelessness.

And it’s all because of a lack of healthcare. But fortunately, there’s not a lack of compassion.

With the help of wonderful supporters like you, people in need don’t have to suffer with untreated diseases. They don’t have to descend into despair. They can get care and get better, going on to live happy lives, being productive members of our communities. No longer neglected, but loved as children of God. No longer overlooked, but valued. No longer lost, but grateful that someone like you cared.
