The Door County Community Foundation recently awarded the Door County Medical Center Foundation a Sustainability Grant from the John and Nell Herlache Community Impact Fund and the Health and Human Needs for the Ministry Fund Program.
The Ministry Fund Program is an initiative to improve the health and well- being of the people in Door County, especially the poor and vulnerable. In 2015, the Ministry Fund helped over 800 people in our community and distributed over $43,000 worth of assistance.
“Often people reach out to the hospital when they feel they have nowhere else to turn,” said Kacie Mueller, Community Relations Officer of the Door County Community Foundation. “The Community Foundation is proud to support the Ministry Fund Program which provides one-time assistance to help Door County residents overcome a crisis."
Door County Medical Center Dental Clinic provides oral health care to the youth and adults of Door and Kewaunee Counties. The clinic serves those who are on Medicaid and/or those with no dental insurance that are low-income with no dental home.
