Helping Hands Clinic. Better Health. Lower Cost.


Thanks to our volunteers, Helping Hands Clinic is able to offer quality medical care to the uninsured at a value significantly greater than the operating budget of the Clinic. Nearly every dollar contributed to the clinic is matched ten-fold by in-kind donations from Caldwell Memorial Hospital, volunteer physicians, RNs, educators, interpreters and others. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Helping Hands team, contact Debra Philyaw, Assistant Director at or 828.754.8565 ext. 313.
