This clinic in Taliaferro County is the first fruit of a call in 2016 by Bishop Rob Wright to identify and help meet pressing needs within the 27 counties of our Diocese without an Episcopal presence.

Using the Asset-Based Community Development model developed by Episcopal Relief and Development, a small group of volunteers studied the counties, made contact with local leaders and worked with them over the past two years to identify and accomplish their local priority.

The most pressing need identified by Taliaferro County residents was access to primary healthcare. A partnership of county, city and school officials was formed that developed a plan to create and support this health clinic. Located on county school property the clinic will serve uninsured children and adults from Taliaferro County's population of 1,700.
