Friends In Need

What Services Do We Offer?

FRIENDS IN NEED provides on-site primary care and dental care as well as referrals to other volunteer physicians and professionals for specialized care.

We serve the working uninsured in Sullivan and Hawkins counties in Tennessee and Scott County, Virginia. These include working single-parent families; people who are working but do not have the income to purchase insurance, those who have jobs that don't provide insurance (part time and full) and people who are becoming independent from government-assistance programs.

Friends In Need continually strives to offer the best on-site primary and dental care to those in our area who need it most. This work could not be done without the generosity of our volunteers and  donors throughout our community.

Even with the outstanding support of our medical and dental volunteers, the cost of healthcare for our patients is continuing to increase. Our average per patient cost in 2011 is $149. You can help insure that Friends In Need will continue to provide the quality healthcare for the working uninsured in our region. Please consider donating to this great organization. You may securely and conveniently place a donation of any amount by clicking the "donate" button and using a credit card or an existing PayPal account.
