Expanding Free Health Clinic on the Near East Side

by Neighborhood Fellowship Medical Clinic - Click here to visit FUNdraiser's site

Help Neighborhood Fellowship Medical Clinic (NFMC) expand its impact from 1 day a week to 6 with the renovation of a 7000 sq ft space on the near eastside by picking a donation amount between $1, $2, $3,...$998, $999, $1000! This will help us raise $500,000 to begin the buildout of the new space.

NFMC has been serving the near eastside of Indianapolis with a free clinic since 2009. The idea was launched through a meeting of the minds of Pastor Jim Streitlemeir and Dr. Javier Sevilla. They opened the free clinic in 2009. Since then over 800 volunteer med students and doctors from IU, UIndy and Butler have served over 1600 patients per year!...and that was only being open 1 day a week.

The need is so much greater and the students and faculty are poised to staff the clinic 6 days a week to meet the growing need.

Will you help us reach more families in need with the healthcare they deserve to be able to survive and thrive? Pick any amount between $ - $1000 and you will leave a legacy that is priceless to so many in our community.

Esto nos ayudará a recaudar $ 500,000 para comenzar la construcción del nuevo espacio.

NFMC ha estado sirviendo al lado este de Indianápolis con una clínica gratuita desde 2009. La idea se lanzó a través de una reunión de las mentes del Pastor Jim Streitlemeir y el Dr. Javier Sevilla. Abrieron la clínica gratuita en 2009. ¡Desde entonces, más de 800 estudiantes de medicina y médicos voluntarios de IU, UIndy y Butler han atendido a más de 1600 pacientes por año! ... y eso solo estaba abierto 1 día a la semana.

La necesidad es mucho mayor y los estudiantes y el profesorado están preparados para atender la clínica 6 días a la semana para satisfacer la creciente necesidad.

¿Nos ayudará a llegar a más familias necesitadas con la atención médica que merecen para poder sobrevivir y prosperar? Elija cualquier cantidad entre $1 - $ 1000 y dejará un legado que no tiene precio para muchos en nuestra comunidad.

We are long-time East Siders and are so thankful for the work you are doing to help those in our community. Knowing that medical students are building relationships with people who struggle with challenges most of us will never experience is inspiring. In this season of Advent, when we "look with joyful hope for the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ", we see that he is born into our world in a tangible way, through the care and compassion students bring to the poor among us. Thank you for our outreach on East 10th Street, and may God bless every student involved.

Health care should be available to all Americans. I saved for retirement and am now retired myself, and it's a struggle for me. I know I'm more fortunate than many, and I want to share.

I'm a retired nurse and feel that far too many people go without adequate healthcare. Nobody deserves to suffer, go without needed medication or without a compassionate caregiver.

Was involved at the clinic for my four years at IUSM. It was the most impactful part of my med school years and played a huge role in forming my future plans to work in an underserved setting with my career.

The IU PA program has had increasing involvement with the IUSOC in recent years and we are excited and committed to continue this partnership with the goal to extend access to better health care. As avid members and advocates for our Indianapolis community, we pledged during PA Week (Oct 6-12) to raise money for the IUSOC to expand the clinic. We raised $83 via "dress down donations." We will continue to support the IUSOC and hope to contribute in more ways in the future.

My company has been very blessed and I want to give back to the inner city community. Neighborhood Fellowship is doing a good work and it needs to continue. God has blessed me so that I can pass it on.

Not our 1st or last dollar to be given to the clinic. But we wanted to make sure that we had the lowest position covered. Jesus turned the four loaves and fish into enough to feed thousands. May our little be multiplied in the Lord's hands.

This is so important because:
First it is an amazing medical and legal service being provided for those who cannot afford such, and
It's an amazing coming together of Christian and secular entities to place community first in the attainment of a common mission.

What is provided is something that is very much needed by those who have no means to provide it for themselves or their family.
