What We Do
Care Ring is dedicated to providing health services for the uninsured, underinsured or those lacking access to affordable, high-quality health care. Every day we empower individuals with limited resources to establish and maintain good health through four quality programs: a Low-Cost Clinic, Nurse-Family Partnership, A Guided Journey, and Physicians Reach Out. Additionally, Nurse-Family Partnership empowers expectant, low-income mothers to become effective parents and providers for their children. Serving more than 7,000 people annually in Mecklenburg County, Care Ring strives to be the leader in collaborative efforts to improve community health and to eliminate disparities in health care outcomes. IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: How We Are Impacted: Challenges for the people we serve are only increasing. They face a higher risk of complications from COVID-19, as many have underlying health conditions, such as diabetes. Many are also losing their jobs and lack public or private insurance. Our neighbors need us now more than ever. We need our community's support more than ever. We are on the front lines of this crisis. Financial Donations Requested: As our client needs and numbers grow, additional funds will enable us to respond to the need and provide care to the most vulnerable in our community. For every $50 donated, you can provide one visit for a patient in our clinic, but gifts of any size are appreciated---monthly automatic giving also available.
