Mission Moment

When I first met Thomas in 2014 at The Lord’s Diner he was homeless and had his belongings stolen – so we went to the Coleman Outlet Store and picked up a sleeping bag. Fast forward to today. Thomas shared his story in my office on a warm October morning.  A few months prior to my meeting him, Thomas had moved from an apartment that he shared with a roommate who had fallen into meth. Thomas “couldn’t be around that stuff” and moved out in the middle of a snow storm. He spent the next 17 months homeless, suffering from PTSD, anxiety and a number of medical conditions. Finally, he went to Open Door and began working in the kitchen. In 2015 the Wichita Police Department’s Homeless Outreach Team was able to find him housing with Interfaith Ministries.

Thomas is being assisted by a unique nationwide program that is funded by a three-year federal grant called Supportive Employment Demonstration. The program is a national qualitative study of 3,000 people, designed to stabilize individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. Through this effort, the goal is then to secure employment in an attempt to keep them off welfare.

Thomas began coming to Guadalupe about four months ago and is being treated by a primary care team of volunteer physicians for a number of medical conditions as well as being treated for his Hepatitis C by our volunteer gastoenterologist. “I’ve come a long way,” Thomas reflects, “and it is very helpful that your staff calls and reminds me about my appointments.  Everyone is always very pleasant,” he continues, “You can tell a lot about a place by how the staff care for you, and they are always wonderful!” David, Thomas’ caseworker, summed up who and what Guadalupe Clinic is when he said, “Your staff is very humble and very aware of who they are caring for: those who need health care the most, but cannot afford it.”

Dear Guadalupe Clinic...

I am excited to be taking on the role of Board Chair for the next two years for Guadalupe Clinic. I am grateful for the support of the Clinic team, the countless volunteers and knowledgeable board who assist the clinic excel as a community based medical clinic for our community members who face challenges finding quality medical care. 

As I look at the role I have accepted for the next two years, I cannot help but be humbled by the original visionaries of the Clinic. They saw a need and took action showing those of us who love the mission of the Clinic how to demonstrate true stewardship of time, talent and treasure.

Our History

In 1985, six volunteer nurses decided to change the face of medicine in Wichita.  They wanted quality affordable health care made available to everyone, regardless of income.  They founded Guadalupe Health Station, which later was renamed Guadalupe Clinic.  Now some 32 years later, there are three clinics and volunteers and staff also provide outreach services at various locations around Wichita.  Guadalupe Clinic has been a donation-based clinic since its inception in 1985. Patients are asked for a $5 donation and receive a doctor's care, lab tests, x-rays, and medication for that donation. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.   Medical volunteers along with staff provide thousands of medical services each year to those in our community with no insurance or other affordable means to health care services.

These are the many companies and foundations that have provided Guadalupe Clinic with needed funding through grant opportunities. We are humbled and grateful for their belief in our mission and for all of their generous support.
