Life Hope Centers is a humanitarian service of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that provides dental, vision and medical screening services to local communities free of charge and seeks to alleviate suffering for all those in need. Helping our communities is at the heart of everything we do at Life Hope Centers. It is why we provide our programs 1-2 times per month at various locations, from Bakersfield to Modesto and from Santa Maria to San Francisco. At Life Hope Centers, we provide:
• Dental Services (cleanings, fillings, extractions and oral health education)
• Vision Services (refraction eye exams and a free pair of prescription glasses)
• Medical Screening (glucose screening, cholesterol screening, and lifestyle coaching)
• And much more (occasionally, we provide haircuts, food, massages, and more).
All the medical and health services we provide have helped thousands of men, women and children who, for many reasons, face barriers to health care. No insurance is required and no personal identification is asked. All are welcomed to receive services.
Since 2016, with the help of volunteers, Life Hope Centers has provided more than $2,341,540 in dental, vision, and other health related services. More than 8,977 people have been served and over 6,744 volunteers have been mobilized to give back to their communities. Individuals like you, driven by a passion to help others, started this humanitarian service! Since that time, the Life Hope Centers program has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives across the Central Valley. This is a testimony of healing, resiliency, strength and empowerment. We have seen individuals in our communities come broken and in need of care and leave with confidence, dignity and joy because of volunteers that have participated to give others a brighter opportunity and future. Now you can be a part of the transforming story. We would be delighted to have you join us and put your compassion into action today!
