FRIENDS IN NEED HEALTH CENTER provides on-site primary care and dental care as well as referrals to other volunteer physicians and professionals for specialized care.
We serve the working uninsured in Sullivan, Hawkins, Washinton, and Greene counties in Tennessee and Scott, Lee, and Wise counties in Virginia. These include working single-parent families; people who are working but do not have the income to purchase insurance, those who have jobs that don’t provide insurance (part time and full) and people who are becoming independent from government-assistance programs. We also serve those who are currently on social security or disability as well as full-time college students.
Friends In Need continually strives to offer the best on-site primary and dental care to those in our area who need it most. This work could not be done without the generosity of our volunteers and donors throughout our community. Even with the outstanding support of our medical and dental volunteers, the cost of healthcare for our patients is continuing to increase. You can help insure that Friends In Need will continue to provide the quality healthcare for the working uninsured in our region. Please consider donating to this great organization. You may securely and conveniently place a donation of any amount by clicking the “donate” button and using a credit card or an existing PayPal account.

Cigna Foundation donates $50,000 and new 40-foot trailer to Friends In Need!
This generous donation will allow us to continue providing care on the Appalachian Miles for Smiles mobile dental unit to people in remote areas of our region that would otherwise have no other access to dental care. The new trailer will be equipped for eye examinations and should be operational sometime in 2018. Thank you Cigna Foundation!!!
