About our Women’s Clinic
Poverty and homelessness put self care on the back burner. Women who experience poverty and homelessness often don’t know anything else and have little to no support.
With the high cost of health care, many women don’t know where to turn. They often skip preventative care and ignore dangerous symptoms, which only makes their situation worse. Many low-cost and free clinics aren’t able to offer women’s health services because they are already overburdened.
What makes Dream Centers Women’s Clinic so different?
The Women’s Clinic is the ONLY clinic in the area that offers free medical, behavioral health, and a suite of wrap-around services. We have a holistic approach to health, caring not only for the physical body, but providing spiritual and social services as well.
Our plan for every woman we provide care for is to:
The Women’s Clinic is fueled by the generosity of the community. Each of our donors plays a part in rewriting stories of women who find themselves in circumstances outside of their control. Many women who come through our doors were raised in poverty, have experienced abuse, and haven’t had access to quality women’s healthcare until now.
Every woman who comes to our clinic is treated as a child of God. Our medical providers are empathetic and patient as they listen to each woman’s needs and concerns, allowing them to provide the best quality of care.
Health is more than caring for a woman’s physical body, which is why the Women’s Clinic offers more than just medical services. This list of services is not exhaustive, but shows the level of care we provide for our patients.
At age 25, Elena was scared and alone with no insurance. She had been a victim of human trafficking since she was 4. Her entire life was defined by fear and abuse. After fleeing an abusive relationship she had nowhere to turn for help with her physical and emotional pain.
It was then that she was referred to the Dream Centers Women’s Clinic by a neighbor. She was hesitant about her first appointment but found herself overwhelmed by a loving greeting, beautiful clinic and the caring medical professional who listened to her concerns. She felt welcomed and love.
Elena’s medical needs were met. Today Elena continues to work towards healing through regular counseling with the Dream Centers Women’s Clinic and has health and hope for the future for the first time in her life.
Sadly, Elena’s story is not uncommon. Because of Dream Centers Women’s Clinic she was able to receive immediate care for both her body and her soul and wasn’t placed on a long waiting list to receive care like at other free clinics.
