Maximizing community resources to reduce poverty.
Cooperative Christian Ministries and Clinic (CCMC) is a non-profit Christian Ministry that strives to improve the quality of life of the needy in the Hot Springs area. It does so by providing general medical care and medications to the uninsured, dental and vision services to the underinsured and by serving as an advocate for the needy– maximizing community resources to reduce poverty.
Formerly, CCMC provided general medical care and medications to the uninsured, dental and vision services to the under-insured. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2014, medical insurance is now a reality for many of the underserved in our community. As a result, our patient base has been reduced enabling CCMC to expand services to the same population in need of assistance.
This expanded mission includes two service divisions:
Medical Division Services
Continue to provide free medical care and medication; dental and vision services to the underinsured; other services.
Ministries Division Services
Offer coordination and collaboration of services among approved local agencies serving the needy to include the areas of healthcare, spiritual needs, mental health, law enforcement, food, shelter, transportation and education. The overall objective is to provide a bridge of hope for the needy leading to a life without poverty’s challenges in order to gain self-sufficiency.
