ShareCorps - Helping Hands - Media and Community Coordinator
Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center is a nonprofit organization that provides general family care to those who are underinsured or uninsured. The mission of the Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center is to be the caring hands to provide medical care, health education, counseling and social services to those with needs. In addition to our Free Care Program, we provide TB Skin Test/ Physicals for those that are trying to enter the workforce. We also provide an alternative approach to wellness through our acupuncture program. In conjunction with OSU's The James, we provide free or reduced-price mammograms and pap smears to promote our women's health initiative. The TB Testing/Physicals Program runs on Tuesday and is the only service the organization charges for. HHHWC asks for an $8.00 to cover the cost of the TB serum; however, if patients are unable to cover the donation, the organization waives the cost. On this same day, physicals are also offered. The acupuncture program is appointment based and operates on Wednesdays, while the Free Care Program operates every Thursday to provide free physician care and free social services care.
