Description of Agency/Activities: Bread of Healing clinic began as a ministry at Cross Lutheran Church in 2000. The clinic began as one volunteer physician and one volunteer nurse one day each week and has since then grown to a much larger agency, serving members of the community four half days each week, seeing 300-350 patients each month. The clinic is able to provide more than one million dollars in medical care to more than 1500 patients who do not have medical insurance. Bread of Healing’s mission is to provide high quality medical care for people with chronic illnesses who work but may not have access to health insurance. Bread of Healing believes that health is an issue of faith, social justice, and wholeness, and provides the opportunity of healing for all.
