ABCCM MEDICAL MINISTRY

Everyone at the clinic has a Christlike attitude. I’m a Christian myself and the Bible teaches us that in all things be grateful. I’m grateful there’s a place like this where I can come when I don’t have insurance.  It’s a wonderful place that offers many services, and they are the same quality as the hospital.
-Matthew Scott, patient

Our mission

The ABCCM Medical Ministry provides urgent care, medication assistance, and crisis dental care to nearly 4,000 Buncombe County adults between 18-65. Those patients—many of whom are working two or more jobs to make ends meet—are deeply grateful for these services.

Serve

Those who serve give countless hours to help those in need.  They are grateful for the opportunity to serve and give back. These hard-working people include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, hygienists, receptionists, intake workers, data entry, medical records and other non-medical volunteers. Medical students from MAHEC, Western Carolina University, and A-B Tech also volunteer with patients as part of their clinical rotations. Serving this population teaches students how to minister to many different needs, and opens their eyes to the ongoing need of the uninsured in our community.

Give

ABCCM Medical Ministry is a nonprofit organization funded by grants, partnerships, and private donations. Your financial gifts allow us to continue the circle of gratitude, paying it forward to our neighbors in need. Our donors are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of other people in our community, to help defray the high cost of healthcare, and to pay it forward.

In-kind Gifts
We always accept gifts of medical equipment (large and small), medical supplies, dental supplies, cleaning supplies; as well as prescription medications and over the counter medications. 

ABCCM Medication Donation Policy 
Because ABCCM is a Christian ministry that relies on the generosity of the Buncombe County community, we gratefully acknowledge all donations of time, talent, energy, and supplies given to help our neighbors in need. We are also entrusted with safely handling medications, so we respectfully ask that all medication go to the clinic and not be dropped off at other Ministry locations.
