2023 CHARITY ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT
We’ve chosen St. Martin’s Healthcare as our January 2023 nonprofit organization to support. This organization serves the underinsured and uninsured residents of DeKalb, Noble, Steuben, and Lagrange Counties. Services include medical, dental, vision, mental health, & prescription assistance. All services provided at the clinic are at no charge to the patients. Their focus for 2023 is increasing access to healthcare. Many patients are unable to access care because of transportation barriers. In Spring 2023, St. Martin’s Healthcare is launching a mobile clinic program which will bring care to those in outlying communities that find it difficult to access healthcare. They operate on community support without government funding. Please join us in supporting their cause: https://www.smhcin.org/support
