About the Open Door Clinic
This year’s race will raise money for the Open Door Health Clinic of Frankfort. The clinic is located at 250 Alhambra Ave., Frankfort and focuses on providing free medical care to the uninsured or underinsured of Clinton County. Last year the clinic saw over 700 patients with over 3000 encounters. Patients must present proof of eligibility including current tax returns or a letter from the IRS.
The clinic is able to provide medications free for a year. Since 2005, the Clinic has provided over $11 million in free medication.
Services offered include diabetes treatment, hypertension treatment, chronic and acute illnesses, pregnancy tests, prenatal vitamins, flu vaccines, physicals, urine tests, and strep tests. They are also able to offer referrals for services which they cannot provide, such as prenatal care, x-rays, and lab tests. Much of these services can be offered at reduced cost.
How is the clinic funded?
In short, by generosity! Since the Clinic receives no federal funding, it must rely on churches, volunteers, and generous private parties. Recently, the clinic underwent some major changes and had to move to a new building. The Clinic is a IRC 501(c)(3) organization and contributions are tax deductible. Please consider donating!
Thank you for making our inaugural Gem City Jog a fantastic event! We raised about $1500 for COACH Kids. Check out pictures from the 2016 event.
