What we do

The CarePlace was birthed out of an expressed need by hundreds of people who used The Pantry. It was heard repeatedly, “It was a choice this week to either feed my family or go to the doctor.”

The catalyst for this free medical clinic came in the donation of a 7,500 square foot mortgage free medical building. God has blessed The CarePlace with partnerships with Wellstar Douglas and Kaiser Permanente and volunteers of licensed medical professionals and many others.
