Without a vision the people perish. (Proverbs 29:18) Covenant Community Care has a vision. It is a vision where all are welcome, where the last are first, where the sick are healed, where the lonely are accompanied, and where all have the gospel preached to them in the person of a caring, compassionate healthcare provider.
It takes a lot of hard, dedicated work to see this vision into reality. It requires partners who believe in the mission and are willing to walk the journey and go the distance to bring that vision to life. Covenant Community Care has the dedicated work force. Michigan has the generous Foundations that believe in Detroit and are willing to invest in the well-being of the people who call metro Detroit home.
Thanks to the generosity of The Carls Foundation, The Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan, The Ethel and James Flinn Foundation, and The Lloyd and Mabel Johnson Foundation, Covenant Community Care is true to its vision and mission of caring for those most in need, especially the uninsured. With the funds from these four foundations, which total $355,000.00, Covenant is able to:
- screen, diagnose and treat patients to identify potential mental illness
- expand the children’s dental program for homeless children and their families
- expand the pediatric dental program, and
- reach out to the broader metro area through the Mobile Health Missions Team with two fully equipped trailers, one medical and one dental providing free treatment to the homeless and those least able to access medical treatment.
Matthew 25:36 drives the mission of Covenant Community Care, “When I was sick, you looked after me.” And there is no stopping it,
