Community of Hope Health Clinic is a Volunteers in Medicine
free clinic for uninsured residents of Shelby County, Alabama.
The Community of Hope Health Clinic (CHHC) is a medical mission that provides non-emergent medical care to Shelby County adults ages 19 – 64 who have no health insurance and whose household income is at or below 200% of the poverty level.
The Clinic opened its doors on October 16, 2008 after entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Shelby County Health Department for use of their building on Thursday evenings.
Other than three part time paid positions the Clinic is totally manned by volunteers. Shelby Baptist Medical Center provides our diagnostic testing. We also have physicians in the area who provide pro bono medical care for referrals that we make.
