General

  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to be a place of healing, where Christian principles of compassionate service meet the medical, social, and mental health needs of those persons in the Mississippi Gulf Coast community who are uninsured or underinsured.

  • History:
  • Our free health clinic developed when a Biloxi church opened their doors immediately following the landfall of Hurricane Katrina to respond to the needs of residents. Volunteer physicians and nurses reported to the church to provide medical care. Individuals quickly sought the church’s help to secure treatment for injuries received either during the storm or after the storm while trying to salvage their homes and belongings. Soon the clinic began treating those who suffered from the living conditions left by the storm – living out in the elements, living with black mold, etc. Next, residents with chronic illnesses began seeking medical care through our clinic as many were unable to locate their physicians or secure appointments. The need for free medical service continues as many Coast residents still suffer gross socioeconomic hardships resultant from this hurricane’s widespread destruction. The Bethel Free Health Clinic, Inc. provided medical care in temporary locations until moving into a permanent location March 2009 made possible through the award of grant monies. Our patients are Coastal residents who are uninsured or underinsured without financial resources to pay for medical care, medications, and/or medical supplies. Low income and working poor Coastal Mississippians continue to struggle to bring their lives and healthcare to pre-Katrina status.
