Bread of Healing Clinic (BOHC) is a free, neighborhood-based medical clinic designed to serve low-income, uninsured adults with chronic health conditions who experience barriers to accessing ongoing health care. The Bread of Healing Clinic believes that health care is an issue of faith, an issue of social justice, and an issue of wellness for all people. The staff is committed to achieving health, which also involves the spiritual health of the patient. A volunteer team approach provides the care of a primary physician, nurse, educators, pharmacist, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, optometry, several medical specialists, medications, and lab services at three locations in Milwaukee.
In addition to serving as a medical home for our patients, the Bread of Healing Clinic also: provides dental and eye care; provides mental and behavioral health services; offers the Med Share program that collaborates with other free clinics in the Milwaukee area to increase access to medication and lower the costs of those medications to the patients of these free clinics; provides the Health Resource Center that guides uninsured patients for their social service and medical care coordination needs – this includes assistance with insurance, finding and/or scheduling a healthcare provider and many more life situations; serves as the fiscal and coordinating agent for the Free and Community Clinic Collaborative (FC3) where issues and concerns are shared, funds are raised, and patients are advocated for; educates medical students and residents in healthcare economics and disparities in healthcare because of race, class, gender, and/or economic status; and embraces spirituality’s role in healing. At The Bread of Healing Clinic, we commit ourselves to respect, love, and learn from the people we serve, believing that the atmosphere we create reflects Jesus’ healing ministry. What the Clinic does embodies our core values of Love, Healing, Humility, Inclusion, Social Justice, Education and Prayer.
