Many of us care about the Affordable
Care Act that opened access to medical care to millions of Americans with no pre-existing exclusions. Family Health Care (FHC)
works for those who have no insurance or inadequate insurance with high deductibles or co-pays for more than twenty-seven
years. FHC is organized throughout with the concept that every person deserves dignity
and respect and that every life has value.
Each day at FHC, we choose to serve those who may have had bad luck, or been
treated poorly, or made bad choices and find themselves without good health. Each day FHC's staff and supporters ensure
that a few more people are provided access to health services they need. Each day we choose kindness. We choose generosity.
Please join with us in choosing to attend
to those who are suffering in this land rather than turn away. Please help with a donation or with your time as
a volunteer to bring healing to our neighbors in need.
Martin Luther King's words (paraphrased by Barack Obama) and keep pulling to "bend the arc of history towards
justice." Hilary Clinton and Tim Kaine used the words attibuted by some to John Wesley (eighteenth century minister):
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the
ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
At this time of uncertainty and when compassion may appear to have lost the immediate battle to meanness, please
keep pulling; keep doing good wherever and whenever you can.
