The Center for Healing & Hope (CHH) provides medical care for individuals in our community who do not have health insurance or access to affordable healthcare. The clinic provides different medical services to our community including: Urgent Care, Women's Health, Diabetes Care, and additional Chronic Care services. The clinic also offers assistance to immigrants in our community which includes: Goshen Resident ID Cards (GRID), Financial Assistance, and DACA renewal fund assistance.
CHH cannot continue to do the work we do without the help of volunteers in our community. The different kind of volunteer opportunities vary from medical to non medical positions. Some of these positions include:
Providers, Clinical Volunteers, Interpreters, Cashiers, Registrars, Greeters, Chaplains, General Office Volunteers, GRID Volunteers and much more!
Due to the COVID Health Crisis, CHH is now in need of additional volunteers to provide testing to uninsured patients in our community. Most of these volunteer opportunities are low risk and do not require volunteers to be bilingual. Some of these positions can even be done from home.
If you are interested in volunteering and exploring these volunteer roles, please fill out a volunteer application by clicking on the option at the top right of this page. Make sure to express interest in the positions you are interested in, and one of our CHH staff members will reach out to you for follow up.
Thank you again for expressing interest in volunteering to help serve our uninsured patients in our community!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CHH is temporarily adapting its services to help continue to provide for our uninsured patients in our community.
We will be obtaining test kits to perform at our clinic that only require a fingerstick. We will need multiple volunteers to be able to run this test site. Many positions are low risk.
Thank you again for stepping up to the challenge to help give back to ours most vulnerable neighbors.
Our clinic is most known for our urgent care services that we have provided for more than 20 years.

As of 2018, CHH has started a Diabetes Alliance Program (DAP) that allows patients with diabetes who are uninsured to have follow up care with a diabetes specialist. For a monthly fee, patients have access to provider visits, labs, vaccines, diabetes education and more!
This clinic runs on Monday evenings and Thursday morning/ afternoon.
We need volunteers who have experience with phlebotomy, vaccine administration, and point of care testing to help support our clinic on these dates.
