God has been moving in mighty ways in 2016!
Inthe beginning of the year, we received a sizable Coordinated Care Grant through CVS to develop our Expansion Plan into Turtle Creek and now, other needy communities in the future. Turtle Creek has been a huge success; and we are excited to see where God will take us from here.
Our relationship with the Rotary Club of Monroeville has grown by leaps and bounds this year! The Rotary is a tremendous organization that makes a huge difference in the world. Last month, they bought the clinic a full-sized medical grade refrigerator and data logger! Because of their generosity, we are looking to develop a Flu Shot Program for our patients this Fall.
Our partnership with Forbes Hospital continues to grow as well! After several meetings with key administrators, we have developed a patient referral program. Forbes will refer uninsured patients to our clinic for much-needed follow up (primary health care). As we are able to provide on-going medical care for this new influx of patients and help Forbes meet this need of their patients, we hope our collaboration will grow stronger. We received our first referral this week; and they have an appointment scheduled for next week!
We have also recently forged a Catholic Charities Free Health Care Center Free Dental Referral Program! Our organizations are joining forces to better serve our patients and the community. Comprehensive dental care is a desperate need for our patients. We are overjoyed at this development for our clinic! Call us at 412-310-0062 for details!
We are in full swing organizing our Annual Fundraising Spaghetti Dinner for May 27th from 6-8pm. (Doors will open at 5pm for the silent auction.) Tickets are on sale for $12.00. The dinner will be held in the Monroeville Assembly of God’s gymnasium at 4561 Old William Penn Highway, Monroeville, PA 15146. So many people have made generous donations, contributions to the baskets for the auction, and put in many volunteer hours. Please pray that the event will be a success! And if you can make it, please come!
So you can see that many exciting things are happening in Sheep Clinic! Hallelujah! We are incredibly thrilled to be a part of what God is doing and to see Him make things happen! As we build new partnerships and develop new programs, please pray for us, for wisdom, knowledge, insight, direction, guidance, and provision.
