Participating in the U.S. Census is more important than you may think

Did you know that everyone living in the United States and its five territories is required by law to be counted in the 2020 census? The Census, which occurs every 10 years in the United States, is a highly important process of collecting data in order to make critical decisions such as where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children. The Census determines congressional representation, informs hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provides data that will impact communities for the next decade.The results will also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than 100 programs, including Medicaid, block grants for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP. For the Center for Healing & Hope and other non-profit health centers, the Census affects how much federal funding we receive from the government for the next 10 years.

The Census is a safe and confidential process for everyone, regardless of citizenship. There is no citizenship question on the 2020 census, and the Census Bureau will never ask you for your Social Security number, for money or donations, for anything on behalf of a political party, or for your bank or credit card account numbers. Your personal information is kept confidential. The Census Bureau is bound by federal law to protect your information, and your data is used only for statistical purposes. Your responses are compiled with information from other homes to produce statistics, which never identify your home or any person in your home. 

The Census Bureau provides a number of ways to respond and provides resources in a variety of languages. For more information on how to respond, please visit https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond.html.

¿Sabía que todos los que viven en los Estados Unidos y sus cinco territorios están obligados por ley a ser contados en el censo de 2020? El Censo, que ocurre cada 10 años en los Estados Unidos, es un proceso muy importante de recopilación de datos para tomar decisiones críticas, como dónde las comunidades necesitan nuevas escuelas, nuevas clínicas, nuevas carreteras y más servicios para familias, adultos mayores, y niños. El Censo determina la representación en el Congreso, informa cientos de miles de millones en fondos federales cada año y proporciona datos que impactarán a las comunidades durante la próxima década. Los resultados también informarán cómo cientos de miles de millones de dólares en fondos federales se asignan a más de 100 programas , incluyendo Medicaid, bloquean las subvenciones para la comunidad mental que éltodos los servicios y el Programa de Asistencia Nutricional Suplementaria, también conocido como SNAP. Para el Centro de Curación y Esperanza y otros centros de salud sin fines de lucro, el Censo afecta la cantidad de fondos federales que recibiremos del gobierno durante los próximos 10 años.

El Censo es un proceso seguro y confidencial para todos, independientemente de su ciudadanía. No hay una pregunta de ciudadanía en el censo de 2020, y la Oficina del Censo nunca le pedirá su número de Seguro Social, dinero o donaciones, nada en la mitad de un partido político, ni los números de cuenta de su banco o tarjeta de crédito. Su información personal se mantiene confidencial. La Oficina Del Censo está obligada por la ley federal a proteger su información, y sus datos se usan solo con fines estadísticos. Sus respuestas se compilan con información de otros hogares para generar estadísticas que nunca identifican su hogar ni a ninguna persona en su hogar.

La Oficina Del Censo proporciona varias formas de responder y proporciona recursos en una variedad de idiomas. Para obtener más información sobre cómo responder, visite https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond.html .

COVID-19 Tests Available For Uninsured People in Elkhart County

The Center for Healing and Hope is now offering rapid tests for COVID-19 for people without insurance who live in Elkhart County. This testing has been arranged in collaboration with the Elkhart County Health Department and with a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Elkhart County and the United Way of Elkhart and La Grange Counties through their “COVID-19 Community Response Fund”.

People without insurance who live in Elkhart County and meet eligibility requirements can now pre-register for testing appointments by calling 574-216-1723. 

Becoming a COVID-19 testing site will create significant additional expenses for the clinic. It has and will continue to take many extra staff hours to respond effectively and compassionately to this pandemic. The staff will be using more supplies such as masks and gloves to protect themselves and their patients; these supplies have now become more expensive. Revenues from patient fees are also expected to drop in the coming weeks.

“The center is facing additional strains on our staff and expenses, especially as we move away from planned fund-raising events to comply with health department directives,” said Center for Healing & Hope board chair Dr. Amanda Schmidt. “We would welcome additional support from our volunteers, donors and partners so we can continue to serve our patients, clients and community.”

If you would like to make a donation to the Center for Healing & Hope during this crucial time, you can make an online donation at chhclinics.org/donate or mail a donation via check made out to Center for Healing & Hope, P.O. Box 195, Goshen, IN, 46527.

To sign up to volunteer, please call 574-534-4744 or visit our online volunteer portal at CHHclinics.org/volunteer.

Top 10 Ways To Help Immigrants & Low-Income Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our community, nation, and world in unprecedented ways. In the midst of school closures, business shut-downs, mass lay-offs, supply shortages, and thousands of sick individuals, we are faced with a common and uniting cause … the safety and health of our most vulnerable neighbors. Those most likely to be affected are people who are not able to self-isolate: the “essential” workers. Not the CEOs, the bankers, and those making six-plus figures. Instead, it’s the blue collar workers, service industry professionals, health care workers, sanitary workers, and assembly line warriors. These are the people who are so essential in a time of crisis that they must keep putting themselves at risk to offer safety and health to the masses. 

Among these workers are many of our immigrant friends and neighbors — many of whom are undocumented. Undocumented immigrants not only lack health insurance, but also fear that they will be reported to ICE or sent to detention centers if they seek medical care or government assistance. 

We see these essential workers and undocumented immigrants on a daily basis through our affordable medical clinic and immigrant resource programs. We hear their stories and have listened to their needs. Based on what we have heard, we have adapted our services to care for these vital needs. We will rely heavily on donations and volunteers in the coming months to continue offering these life-saving services and resources to vulnerable populations. So, we need your help! Please see our list of top 10 ways you can help immigrants and low-income families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For questions or to find out more, call us at 574-434-4744 or send us an email at info@chhclinics.org

  1. Help us raise grocery money for out-of-work immigrants. We hope to provide grocery gift cards to immigrant families with at least one parent unable to work during the coronavirus pandemic. We would like to be able to provide grocery gift cards for everyone who calls in and so we need your help! If you are able, please donate to EC  Hope Immigrant Resource Fund. Your donation will go towards purchasing gift cards to grocery stores, as well as helping with other financial assistance requests that come in. Click here to make a donation. Make sure to select “EC Hope Immigrant Resource Fund”.
  2. Sponsor medical care for someone with diabetes. Diabetes is a high-risk factor for COVID-19 and can increase the severity of symptoms. The Center for Healing & Hope’s Diabetes Alliance Program (DAP) has been highly successful in helping uninsured clients to control their diabetes and live healthier lives. The program costs $30 per month and includes regular check-ups with a medical professional, critical vaccines, educational resources and some medications. During the next four months, our clients will struggle to pay their membership fees. By becoming a sponsor, you will help ensure that our clients receive the care they desperately need and ease the burden of deferred payments that will become due when they are able to return to work. Sign up for a monthly recurring payment of $30 or give a lump sum of $120 to sponsor a client. All sponsorships will be anonymous and contributions will be a tax deductible contribution to the DAP Sponsorship Fund. To donate, click here.
  3. Help us get the word out. If you are quarantined at home and/or out of work and are unable to make a charitable contribution or volunteer, please help us spread the word about our programs and resources by referring friends,  neighbors, and co-workers with a medical need and who have no regular doctor to consult. Share CHH’s information by phone, email, or social media. 
  4. Donate supplies on our wish list. To make a donation, arrange a drop off or pick time by calling 574-534-4744 x206. Here’s our wish list:
    1. Hand sanitizer
    2. Paper towels
    3. Toilet paper
    4. Face masks (hand-made is fine!)
    5. Hand soap
    6. Jugs of distilled water
    7. White copy paper
    8. Gel pens
  5. Purchase Eat-Shop-Give gift certificates. Each gift certificate is $20. Half of the proceeds go directly back to the local business, and half goes to support the Center for Healing & Hope programs. You can purchase your gift certificates through this secure online portal from now until Sunday, April 19.
  6. Do you have a medical background? Volunteer in our clinic. Center for Healing & Hope’s medical clinic is offering daily telemedicine phone consults anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms. To anyone who does not have a primary care provider, we provide education and advice on managing symptoms, including advice about when care in an Emergency Department is warranted. To continue these services, we urgently need clinical volunteers. If you or someone you know has a medical background, speaks Spanish, and is interested in volunteering, call us at 574-534-4744 or sign up through our online volunteer portal.
  7. Fluent in Spanish and English? Help interpret in our clinic. As we work to expand our telemedicine hours to every day of the week, our need for interpreters grows as not all of our volunteer medical professionals are fluent in both Spanish and English. If you can assist, please call 574-534-4744 or fill out the form through our online volunteer portal.
  8. Assist with child care. The Center for Healing and Hope’s Elkhart County HOPE Network, a program that connects undocumented immigrants with valuable resources and education, will organize childcare to alleviate the burden of working families with children at home as well as providing resources to help prevent food scarcity. Through Safety Networks, we will match volunteers with immigrant families in need of childcare. If you have the time and are willing to provide childcare, please fill out this form.
  9. Make a charitable donation. In order to continue offering these life-saving services to vulnerable populations, we rely on people who have a heart for the uninsured and our immigrant neighbors. Donations will go directly toward funding medical supplies for staff and our food aid program. Offering a financial gift will help sustain our telemedicine consults through the remainder of this crisis. The Center for Healing & Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible and you will receive a tax receipt for each gift.
    1. Make an online donation through our secure giving page, using a credit card.
    2. Call in to donate with a credit card: 574-534-4744, ext. 206.
    3. Mail a donation: make your check payable to Center for Healing & Hope. Send it to P.O. Box 195, Goshen, IN 46527-0195.
  10. Pray. Please keep our staff, volunteers, and patients in your prayers as we work together to help ease the burden of this pandemic for our community through our programs and resources.

Missy Schrock Named Center for Healing & Hope Executive Director

The Center for Healing & Hope is pleased to announce that Missy Schrock, MBA, BS, was recently appointed Executive Director of the Center for Healing & Hope.

Clinic Moves To Telemedicine

Para español, ver abajo.

Due to the spreading COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Healing & Hope is implementing limited weekend telemedicine visits for those needing urgent evaluation and advice.

Between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. every day of the week, people without a primary care provider who are sick and need urgent advice can call 574-216-1723 to arrange a telemedicine visit with a provider.

This service is ONLY for people sick with COVID-19 symptoms. No other urgent care needs will be addressed during these times.

Telemedicine visits cost $30 (credit or debit card required) if a patient has insurance, and are free for patients without insurance. A provider will assess your symptoms and determine if a COVID-19 test is appropriate (specific criteria need to be met due to an ongoing shortage of test kits).

Change to telemedicine

As the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads, the Center for Healing & Hope is transitioning to a telemedicine model for most of our visits. We are doing this for several reasons:

  • To protect our patients, many of whom are at high risk for serious complications from the virus due to age, diabetes or other chronic health conditions.
  • To protect our volunteers, many of whom are retired and in a higher risk age group.
  • To allow us to continue to provide accurate information to those we serve. We will be able to triage patients that have Covid 19 symptoms, and order testing for appropriate patients.

For Our Patients:

We want you to understand that Telemedicine visits do not replace optimal in-person visits with a health care professional, and are only being used temporarily because of the current COVID-19 epidemic. The provider will do his/her best to evaluate your health care needs and will use their professional judgment to offer you medical advice based on the information you provide. You should seek an in-person evaluation at an urgent care or emergency department if your symptoms persist or worsen, or if you or the provider feel you couldn’t be fully evaluated over the phone.

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms, OR if you have any other medical issue that you would like to have one of our medical providers help you with, please call us at 574-216-1723 during our regular office hours to schedule a telemedicine visit.

For Our Donors & Supporters:

This shift to telemedicine comes with significant increased expenses for us. It has and will continue to take many extra staff hours to deal effectively and compassionately to this epidemic. We will also be consuming a lot of (now) expensive supplies (masks and gloves) to protect ourselves and our patients. For many of those we serve, we are the most reliable source of accurate information, and the only source for being triaged and tested if they develop COVID-19 symptoms.

We will also experience a significant drop in revenue from patient fees.

In order to stay solvent and continue to work on the frontlines of responding to this pandemic, we will need our donors to help provide the finances to stay “open”.

To donate or find out more, click here: http://chhclinics.org/donate

For Our Volunteers:

We are sending each of our current volunteers an email about what this transition means for you, and how we still very much need your help. 

For new volunteers, we are especially in need of nurses that can draw blood and interpreters.  You can sign up to volunteer by going to chhclinics.org/volunteer.

Please fill out a new volunteer application and you will receive an email from Bella for instructions and to coordinate a schedule.

La clínica cambia a telemedicina

Debido a la propagación de la pandemia COVID-19, el Centro de Salud y Esperanza está implementando visitas limitadas de telemedicina durante los fines de semana para aquellos que necesiten evaluación y consejo urgente.

Entre las 10:00 am y las 2:00 pm , las personas sin un proveedor de atención primaria que estén enfermas y necesitan consulta urgente pueden llamar al 574-216-1723 para programar una consulta de telemedicina con un proveedor.  Este servicio es SOLO para personas posiblemente enfermas con COVID -19. No se atenderá ninguna otra necesidad de atención urgente durante este tiempo.

Un proveedor evaluará sus síntomas y determinará si una prueba de COVID-19 es apropiada (es necesario cumplir con criterios específicos debido a la falta estudios).  Proporcionaremos educación y recomendaciones sobre el manejo de los síntomas, incluyendo consejos sobre cuándo es necesario la atención en un Departamento de Emergencia.  Si los síntomas indican que una prueba de antibióticos es apropiada, se enviará una receta a su farmacia (NOTA: los antibióticos NO tratan el virus COVID-19).

A medida que el virus que causa el COVID-19 se propaga, el Centro de Salud y Esperanza está haciendo la transición a un modelo de telemedicina para la mayoría de nuestras consultas. Estamos haciendo esto por varias razones:

  • Para proteger a nuestros pacientes, muchos de los cuales tienen un alto riesgo de complicaciones graves por el virus debido a la edad, la diabetes u otras condiciones de salud crónicas.
  • Para proteger a nuestros voluntarios, muchos de los cuales están retirados y en un grupo de edad de mayor riesgo
  • Para permitirnos continuar proporcionando información precisa a aquellos a los que servimos. Podremos clasificar a los pacientes con síntomas de Covid 19 y ordenar pruebas para los pacientes apropiados.

Queremos que entienda que las consultas de telemedicina no reemplazan las consultas personales óptimas con un profesional de salud, y sólo se utilizan temporalmente debido a la actual epidemia de COVID-19. El proveedor hará todo lo posible por evaluar sus necesidades de atención médica y utilizará su juicio profesional para ofrecerle consejos médicos basados en la información que usted proporcione. Usted debe buscar una evaluación en persona en un departamento de atención urgente o de emergencia si sus síntomas persisten o empeoran, o si usted o el proveedor sienten que no pueden ser evaluados completamente por teléfono.

Si cree que tiene los síntomas de COVID-19, O si tiene cualquier otro problema médico con el que le gustaría que uno de nuestros proveedores médicos le ayudara, por favor llámenos al 574-216-1723 durante nuestro horario regular de oficina (abajo) para programar una consulta de telemedicina.

Consultas de telemedicina disponibles diariamente

10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Este servicio es SOLAMENTE para personas con síntomas de COVID 19.

No se atenderán otras necesidades de atención urgente durante estos tiempos.
