Scott Christian Care Center 

The Grow Appalachia grant in Scott County is managed by the Scott Christian Care Center, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide for those in need in Scott County.  Service provided include a free medical clinic, food pantry, household/hygiene item pantry,  assistance with medicine, and life skill classes.

Free Medical Clinic

The free clinic serves people who can’t afford  medical insurance by providing totally free medical services.   Since the recent closing of the Scott County Hospital, the demand for these services has increased significantly.

 Food Pantry  

Since Scott County is a distressed county with the highest unemployment in the state, many families in our community are in need of assistance with food.  It is the goal of the Scott Christian Care Center to  provide nutritious food for those families.

 Household/Hygiene item pantry  

Many people in our community can’t afford basic necessities such as laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, shampoo, and diapers.  These items cannot be purchased with food stamps.  The Center provides these basic items to families in need.  

  Assistance with Medicine  

The Scott Christian care Center provides advocacy for patient assistance programs to help patients access free or reduced cost medicine.
 Life Skill Classes   

 In addition to providing for immediate needs, the Scott Christian Care Center offers a variety of classes to provide the skills necessary to help individuals help themselves.
