While many people have some form of insurance or personal resources that helps to pay for our services, we have many persons that have little or no resources. We see persons regardless of their financial status, and we use fundraisers, donations, and church support to make up the difference. Those monies are put into the Uninsured Fund. This fund makes it possible to continue to see those with little to no resources.”
