Health Services (SHS) is the ONLY organization of its kind in the tristate
Appalachian area of Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky. SHS began as a free
medical and dental clinic in December of 2013 for uninsured patients in
Claiborne County Tennessee and surrounding counties. The SHS campus includes: Path
to Peace Wellness/Fitness Center and community kitchen; SHS Food Pantry and
Thrift store; and Powell Valley Elementary/Middle/Pre-school (PVES) with a
combined total of approximately 400 students. SHS has the ability and the facility
to be a “one-stop-shop” for health care. In November of 2017 SHS was designated
as a Rural Health Clinic which means that in addition to the uninsured
patients, SHS now takes pediatric patients and those with other insurances
including TennCare. With the addition of pediatric patients, the realization of
the deeper needs have surfaced. Approximately 50% of our school aged children
are being raised by someone other than biological parents. Most of these are
uninsured children. PVES also has the highest percentage of Hispanic children in the area
due to migrant farm worker population in the area. There is little support for
these caregivers and little opportunity for these children. The opioid crisis
is ravaging our county and the children are suffering the most. Of the Top 10 US Counties with the Most Opioid
Painkillers Per Capita, Claiborne County is ranked number 7. The need is great, the resources are limited. To
make a difference, SHS is building a network to sustain the services already
provided and offer support to caregivers and after school activities
for children including prevention programs, fitness and wellness activities,
arts programs and mentoring. Funds from youhelp.com will assist us to sustain these programs.
