This article is a summary of the challenges, struggles, and barriers that a group of churches encountered in developing a faith-based free health clinic. From the inception, this clinic has existed for the uninsured whose total household income aligns with the 2009 Fedral Poverty Guidelines. A voluntary interview with the executive director of The Good Samaritan Clinic revealed the experiential evolvement of this free health clinic. Numerous examples are shared that depict how this clinic has made a difference in the lives of many people.
