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 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.

  1. I am on long term disability and have an attorney helping me with my SSD case. I will not have insurance after the last day of the April, 2014. I am seeing a pain management/neurologist, physical therapist, Psychatrist and being referred to a neuro psychologist and a doctor for a sleep study. Is there anything your services can help me with. I don’t know what I’ll do about care and medication without insurance.
    Thank you!

    1. We function like a primary care clinic seeing mostly chronic conditions. However we do have some orthopedic doctors who volunteer and might be able to help. You will have to come to intake on Thursday and if you qualify we will give you an appointment and the provider will determine what can be done. If you need more information please call 685-4154.

    2. To sign up for the clinic come on Thursday to the Health Department in Pelham between 10am and 1pm. Go to the Community Room just inside the front door. Bring a picture ID and proof that you live in Shelby County. If you qualify you will be given an appointment to see a doctor. We have clinics on Monday and Tuesday during the day and Thursday at night.
