NAPLES — Join more than 700 volunteers helping to provide hope and healing at the Neighborhood Health Clinic, a non-profit, community-driven organization delivering medical and dental care to low-income, working but uninsured adults in Collier County.
“As our late Founder Nancy Lascheid always noted, ‘we’re here for and because of our community,’ and nothing could be truer,” shares Leslie Lascheid, Chief Executive Officer. “From taking leadership positions on the Board and supporting our staff to providing direct medical and dental care, Neighborhood Health Clinic exists because of and for individuals across Collier County.”
As the safety net for the community’s working uninsured employees, the charity relies on some 250 physicians, 50 dentists, 100 nurses and 6 hygienists, as well as 300 non-medical volunteers, donating their time, talent and expertise to ensure patients have access to the medical and dental care they need to work, care for their families and remain active members of the community:
• Nearly 30,000 patient procedures (in 2022)
• More than 12,000 patient visits with working, uninsured men and women (in 2022)
• Access to general medical practitioners; specialty clinics for complex, chronic conditions and dentists
• Onsite laboratory basic tests for established patients
• Patient education and research projects
• Volunteer-driven: 250 physicians, 50 dentists, 10 hygienists, 100 nurses and 300 non-medical personnel
• A 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that has received the coveted Four-Star Charity Navigator rating 9 years in a row and GuideStar’s 2021 Platinum Seal of Transparency
