Covenant Community Care, Inc. is very excited to announce that they have received a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to work with the Joy-Southfield CDC to create a community health center on the northwest side of Detroit. Currently, Joy-Southfield CDC operates the Juanita Reeves free clinic at 18917 Joy Road. The Clinic currently serves 1,800 patients per year.
“This grant will enable us to work with the Joy Southfield CDC to improve healthcare services in the Cody Rouge and Brightmoor communities. We will be able to hire great doctors, dentists and staff to meet the health care needs in the community,” explains Paul Propson Covenant Community Care’s CEO.
The clinic currently offers primary care, chronic disease management, and prescription services. The economic and health needs of the Joy-Southfield community are substantial. According to the U.S. census bureau, 61% of the residents are low income and 19% are uninsured.
With the new funding, a full service Community Health Center will be established that will providee primary medical care, behavioral health, dental hygiene, and health insurance enrollment services.
Covenant will be providing Pediatric services Tuesdays and Thursday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Appointments available and walk-ins are welcome. Health insurance enrollment also available by appointment.
