Last week, Refuge of Hope Ministries held the official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Community Care Center — a building on the organization’s campus that now hosts its clothing ministry, medical clinic and food pantry.
Refuge of Hope is a faith-based nonprofit providing safe, sober, emergency transitional shelter for men and hot, nutritious meals for hungry men, women and children in Stark County. The addition of the Community Care Center, located at 215 Orchard Ave. NE in downtown Canton, has been an ongoing project designed to expand and enhance its offerings.
Starting this month, the medical clinic in the new building is ready to serve patients. With treatment provided by LifeCare, patients who have Medicare, Medicaid or other forms of health insurance can walk in every Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with no appointment necessary.
For patients without health insurance, Faithful Servants is also operating out of the clinic and will treat and provide free medication for anyone in need. This ministry serves the working community during evening hours and is a valuable resource for local hospitals, employers and others needing an alternative source of care for those who do not have health insurance. Appointments are necessary for this service and can be made by calling 330-495-7692.
