Every Child’s Hope

Every Child’s Hope Clinic was started in 2001 and was made in partnership between iFM Community Medicine and Every Child’s Hope Children’s Home operating on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. ECH is mainly a residential facility for teens, but their age range is between six and eighteen years old. Many of the teens in the residential program have a history of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse and can stay anywhere from a week to a year depending on their needs. The residence can hold up to 55 adolescents, many of home rarely see a physician if ever. The clinic allows for them to be seen by a Nurse Practitioner for a variety of reasons from sick visits and checkups to well visits and physicals in a safe environment, free of abuse and neglect.
