Healing Hands Health Center is a free medical, dental, vision, chiropractic, physical therapy and counseling center that provides quality, compassionate, charitable healthcare to working, uninsured residents in our community. Healing Hands is celebrating 59,000 patient visits and has provided over 18 million dollars in free medication since opening our doors in 1997.

Each year, we continue to see increased demand for our services and are continually looking for ways to widen our reach and expand our coverage area.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support our Dental and Vision programs, two areas of need not covered through the Affordable Care Act. Please support Healing Hands as we fundraise to continue providing charitable care to those in need.

Sara was born with Cerebral Palsy and has been unable to walk with a normal gate for much of her life. After moving back to Bristol, Sara quickly recognized that she had very little options to receive care, as she was uninsured and unable to work. Sara states that because she had “full arm motion and could walk a little”, she was unable to receive disability. Someone told her about Healing Hands and our mission to help the working, uninsured. Sara desperately wants to work, but couldn’t because she was unable to walk for more than 20 minutes without having severe pain and stiffness.

Because someone in Sara’ household works she was seen at Healing Hands by volunteer physical therapist, Angie Foster, and together with Terry from Bristol Orthotics and Prosthetics, Sara was given a brace that was customizable to her needs.

Sara now walks with a normal gate and can stand for long periods of time. She is incredibly excited about returning to the workforce and credits the love, support and care she’s received at Healing Hands and from Bristol Orthotics and Prosthetics for getting her “back on her feet.”

Sara says, “The people at Healing Hands make you feel like every other proud citizen in Bristol and we are so lucky they are here. They give of their time for only a donation and they’ve definitely changed my life!”
