Project H.E.A.L. (Health, Education, Access, Link) is an outreach program of CentraCare Family Health Center. Its goal is to overcome the barriers to healthcare for the under-served population of Central Minnesota — barriers of transportation, inadequate or lack of insurance, financial resources for co-payments and medications, language and culture.
Project H.E.A.L. provides free health screenings and basic health services for individuals who have little or no insurance coverage. Physicians, nurses and other health care workers volunteer their time once-a-month to provide care to underserved individuals in various communities throughout central Minnesota. These volunteers address a variety of health concerns from sore throats and head lice to burns and back injuries.
The partners for Project H.E.A.L. include local congregations, Place of Hope, Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Central Minnesota Parish Nurse Program, CentraCare Coordinated Care Clinic, St. Cloud Hospital, St. Cloud Legal Services.
