St. Thomas Aquinas Mission Outreach Awards Two Grants…

Guadalupe Clinic receives a grant for $4,500 from St. Thomas Aquinas Mission Outreach to assist with CANA counseling services for patients! Pictured above – Andy Nolan from the Outreach Committee with Sally Beck, CANA Counselor, and Jodi Guillemette, Director of Development.

Guadalupe Clinic also received a grant of $700 from St Thomas Aquinas Mission Outreach through the Diocesan Council of SVdP. Ronda Bevilacqua, a member of the Diocesan Council of SVdP asked for funds for three organizations, one of which was Guadalupe Clinic. She requested funds to help patients with dental needs.

Rhonda recognized a common pattern among the poor. Many had missing teeth or teeth needing repair. She also knew through personal experience as she has a brother who is mentally disabled and a nephew who has Down Syndrome. Both men have dental issues and have had a difficult time finding an agency to help.

“These experiences opened my eyes as to why low income people have such bad teeth. If they could get their teeth cleaned and filled when they first start having issues, it would make such a difference in being able to keep some of their teeth. They need crowns and partials as well so that their bones don’t deteriorate and cause further problems.” said Rhonda.

When Rhonda’s group applied for funds through St. Thomas Aquinas Mission Outreach, she thought of Guadalupe Clinic and the dental need of many of the patients. This grant will help to bring a smile back to someone who will get the dental care they need.

When asked why she chose us to partner with for this grant, Rhonda said, “ I chose to partner with Guadalupe Clinic because you build relationships with your patients. Your staff are so kind and compassionate and know the dentist who will work with you.”

Thank you Rhonda and both organizations for your generosity and support!

These are the many companies and foundations that have provided Guadalupe Clinic with needed funding through grant opportunities. We are humbled and grateful for their belief in our mission and for all of their generous support.

Our History

In 1985, six volunteer nurses decided to change the face of medicine in Wichita.  They wanted quality affordable health care made available to everyone, regardless of income.  They founded Guadalupe Health Station, which later was renamed Guadalupe Clinic.  Now some 30 years later, there are three clinics and volunteers and staff provide outreach services at various locations around Wichita.  What began as a donation-based model still operates the same way today. Patients are asked for a $5 donation however no one is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.   Medical volunteers along with staff provided over 25,000 medical services this past year to those in our community that would have otherwise gone without care or ended up in the emergency room.
