Supporting Us

HCCH is able to see patients without health and dental insurance, but a balance is needed between un-insured and insured (private, medicaid, or medicare) patients in order to keep the doors open. One way you can help, is by making us your primary dental or medical care provider!

Another way you can help is by making a donation. All donations are 100% tax deductible and every penny goes towards helping those in the community.

If you would like more information on how to make a tax deductible donation, or have questions, please contact Rachel Florence (RachelHCCH@gmail.com)
