Background Statement
The high unemployment rate and under paying jobs in Jackson County left families uninsured and unable to afford medical and dental insurance coverage. The clinic was founded in 2007 as a partnership with Mercy and Truth Medical Missions (MTMM) and operating under Hope Network of Raytown 501© 3 until receiving a determination letter for Mission of Hope Clinic in 2014. In 2012 MTMM changed their strategic planning to include only Kansas medical facilities. Mission of Hope Clinic was birthed to continue meeting the need of the community. MOHC’s mission is to improve the health of this population. The provider and the patient work together to achieve patient goals which will make for healthier patients and a healthier community.
Impact Statement
Mission of Hope Clinic Health Fair provided the community with one day of free dental and health care services. The fair also introduced the clinic to the community that was not aware this neighborhood safety net clinic was in their area. Many attendees stated they use the hospital emergency room as their primary care facility. Education was provided explaining the importance of continuity of care with a primary care clinic and the affordable cost of treatment.
  • Mission of Hope Clinic became aware of an unmet dental need. Patients that have Medicaid that are in need of a joint replacement or transplant must have their dental needs taken care of prior to surgery. Medicaid does not cover the cost of those treatments even though Medicaid is covering the cost of the surgery. The patients are unable to afford the high cost of dental treatment. Mission of Hope Clinic is meeting those needs and is seeking additional funding to cover dental expenses for this vulnerable population.
  • Mission of Hope Clinic has an increased number of Spanish speaking patients. The clinic provides translators for assisting those patients. 

2018 Goals:

  • Increase the number of days dental services are available which will double current patient capacity.
  • Diversify the ethnicity and community representation of the board of directors.
  • Provide optometry services in partnership with Advanced EyeCare.
  • Strengthen partnership with YMCA on programs f or patients with hypertension and pre-diabetic condition.
Needs Statement
  • Volunteer Dental providers - Dentists and hygienists. The high cost of dentistry leaves the poor without good oral care. Each day the clinic receives calls from people that have emergency dental needs. Abscessed teeth can be fatal and need attention however the poor are unable to find dental providers to assist. Very few dentists accept Medicaid leaving oral hygiene as an ongoing health issue.
  • Medical providers – Doctors and nurse practitioners that would be available to volunteer one day or evening each week. The clinic serves the working poor that need evening hours available at the clinic.
  • The clinic is looking for a person to create a monthly newsletter. The individual would take photographs and get the stories from the providers to create the newsletter.
  • Monthly donors that will commit to $25.00 each month which covers the cost of one medical visit for a patient that can’t afford to pay. The clinic is looking for 100 supporters to donate $25.00 through the website……missionofhopeclinic.com. The donor can sign up to make a monthly donation through the site.
  • Corporations to partner with our efforts to improve health in the Kansas City Metro area.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Statement from the Executive Director
Mission of Hope Clinic (MOHC) is offering hope and help to the medically indigent in the community. The clinic offers compassionate and comprehensive health and dental care to the vulnerable populations in our society. Our neighbors that suffer with chronic health issues feel helpless because of the high cost of office visits, laboratory expenses and medications. MOHC provides affordable medical and dental services to these patients. MOHC providers are committed to educating our patients about their chronic illnesses. This education addresses nutrition, exercise, mental health, and medication reconciliation as well as the importance of compliance with the medical protocols given to the patient. The goal of MOHC is to empower the patient to have the necessary tools to manage their chronic illness that will lead to a healthier patient.
Mission of Hope Clinic provides care for the medically indigent population. The rising cost of insurance and the high rate of unemployment is leaving adults and children without health care services. This safety net clinic is bridging the gap by offering affordable medical services to the uninsured. The unemployed, under-employed and working poor do not have access to quality health care. Many of them are suffering with chronic illnesses and are in desperate need of a medical home. The local emergency rooms become their primary health care provider where they must receive treatment regardless of their ability to pay for services. Mission of Hope Clinic is a local neighborhood safety net clinic that offers medical attention away from the local emergency rooms. The effective management of a chronic illness requires a consistent relationship between the patient and health care provider. This is effectively accomplished at Mission of Hope Clinic.
Mission of Hope Clinic provides:
  • Primary family Care
  • Full Laboratory
  • Acute and Chronic Care
  • Preventative Healthcare and Education
  • Gynecology
  • Diabetes & Hypertension Management

Short-Term Success
Patient education concerning their illness gives the patient the knowledge concerning what is happening to their body. Explaining the impact that the choices they are making can lead to a healthier body with the help of medications empowers the patient leading to a healthier lifestyle. Many patients do not understand healthy eating choices and how that relates to the illness. Encouraging the patient to do a moderate amount of exercise each day is also improving the health of the patients. Prescription reconciliation at the time of the initial appointment is critical. Patients are taking over the counter medications, prescribed medications and too often medications bought in a foreign country as part of their daily routine. Everything the patient is taking needs to be reconciled at the initial appointment.
Long-Term Success
The goal of the medical program is to manage chronic illnesses and reduce the number of hospitalizations. This includes the self-management required of the patient and compliance with medical protocols between health care provider and patient.
Program Success Monitored By
Patients receive notebooks to record daily measurements of their illness. These notebooks are reviewed at the quarterly office visit with their health care provider. At the time of that visit blood lab work ups are done which reveal improvements in the disease.
Examples of Program Success
A 40 year old male had an initial visit at the clinic complaining of “not feeling well”. The day of his visit his blood sugars were 600. He said he had been to the emergency room a year prior, was diagnosed as a diabetic. He was not able to afford the medications prescribed and he did not have health care provider. His fear of the cost had kept him from getting the help he needed. At the time of the visit his eye sight was so poor he could not drive and needed assistance to be placed in an exam room. Mission of Hope Clinic provided him with the insulin to control the diabetes, the clinic filled out prescription assistance for all future medications and made referrals to other local agencies to help with each problem he was experiencing. Today he is receiving the insulin he needs daily, his diet is improving, Truman Eastland has removed cataracts from his eyes, and he is feeling better.
Mission of Hope Dental clinic provides preventative and restorative care to adults and children in order to reduce oral disease. The clinic provides a full range of services including:
  • Cleaning
  • Scaling and Root Planing for Periodontal Disease
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Crowns
  • Bridges and Partials
  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants
  • Oral Health Education
Category Health Care, General/Other Dental Health Care
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Short-Term Success
  • Increase in number of dental patients receiving treatment and education.
  • Extracting the infected teeth has reduced the number of abscesses and emergency room visits from our patients.
  • Early treatment of periodontal disease resulting in improved oral health.
  • Educating patients on proper oral health care results in improved oral health.
Long-Term Success
  • Providing a safety net dental care offering affordable oral health to the poor.
  • 70% of patients complete the dental treatment plan.
  • Improving A1C levels in diabetics by lowering the bacteria in their mouth.
  • Educating patients on proper oral hygiene care leading to a reduction in cavities.
  • Reducing periodontal disease.
Program Success Monitored By Mission of Hope Clinic uses an EMR called Eaglesoft in order to monitor the completion of the patient’s treatment plan. The dental providers work with the executive director to review the patient charts to show outcomes.
Examples of Program Success
The program success is seen by the positive impact the program has on the individual patients. The program has improved the appearance of many patients resulting in improved self-esteem which allows them to go get a better job. By removing an abscessed tooth the patient's health is immediately improved. Infected teeth are a serious danger to the patient.
A single young mother came to the clinic with serious dental problems as a result of an eating disorder. The years of purging had left her teeth decayed, she no longer smiled and several teeth were abscessed. This young woman felt hopeless and was aware the high cost of dental treatment would prevent her from restoring her smile. The clinic has provided crowns, bridges and extractions. Today her smile and her self-esteem has been restored. She has just been given a job as the front hostess at an exclusive restaurant in town.
CEO Comments Mission of Hope Clinic is looking toward the future. As we look ahead to the next five years, we see the Clinic continuing to grow and offering continued excellence in healthcare to our medical and dental patients. This growth will require new partnerships within the business community We strive to develop lasting and impactful relationships with those entities in the area who desire to see healthcare for the vulnerable populations be available outside of the ER. Safety Net Clinics such as Mission of Hope must continue to find new ways to fund their mission and new volunteers to assist in the delivering of excellent care to our patients. We hope to welcome many partners on board not only in the next few months but in the next several years.

CEO Comments

Mission of Hope Clinic strives to improve the health of each patient through education and treatment of the patients illness. We are faced with several challenges along this journey to health. Obstacles include the lack of funding to cover routine lab costs that are required to properly manage the illness. Another obstacle is patient compliance to the medical protocols needed to treat the illness. Patients often time can not afford their medications therefore they discontinue the medication protocol leading to high blood sugar counts, high blood pressure, and other illnesses that are controllable with proper medication routines. The last obstacle is this is a very transient population. The clinic loses contact with patients because they frequently move or are unable to afford telephones resulting in loss of contact.

Mission of Hope Clinic's mission is to improve the health of the individual creating a healthy patient and a healthy community.
