Program Information

The Sumter Faith Clinic is a volunteer medical ministry that seeks to serve our community by addressing both physical and spiritual needs. Our mission is to promote the health and well-being of Sumter County's uninsured and underserved by providing them with compassionate medical care at no cost. Our prayer is that through our efforts to help them, they will find healing and hope in Jesus Christ.

The Sumter Faith Clinic serves patients who live in Sumter County who do not have any form of Medical Insurance, including Medicare or Medicaid, and whose yearly household income is less than twice the federally designated poverty level.

Job Description

The Sumter Faith Clinic is staffed by volunteers who serve one or two shifts a month. Volunteers sign up to help in one position based upon their gifts and skill sets. Volunteer positions include the Front Desk, Nurse, Medical Provider, and Prayer. We also have families and small groups that volunteer to come in and clean the clinic once a quarter.

Requirements

Most volunteers come and serve with us one afternoon or evening and then decide if they would like to continue serving and we give them an application to fill out, including references. We do not have age requirements, in that all volunteers work on a team and are never alone with another adult. We train new volunteers by providing them verbal and written instructions for the position. Our volunteers are asked to dress modestly and comfortably.

Hours

Mondays       5:45 – 9:15 PM                   

Thursdays     12:45-5:15 PM

Some shifts are shorter than others depending on how many patients come through. We normally do not stay this long for either shift, but on occasion we do. Some volunteers also are only able to work a couple of hours at a time and we work with them to make it possible for them to serve.

If a small group of students wants to come together for a couple of hours to clean the building, we can set that up for almost any time that they are available.
