The mission of Willing Helpers is to provide quality healthcare to individuals who have no insurance and are unable to pay for medical services.
The clinic was founded in 2006 through the efforts of Solid Rock Baptist Church and local community doctors and nurses.

After a decades-long career as a pharmacist, Ed chose to "retire" by starting a free clinic. Ed remained the Executive Director and driving force behind Willing Helpers from its inception in 2006 until his second retirement in early 2019. We lost Ed to illness on September 9th, 2020, but his legacy lives on in all 8,000 lives he touched during his time at the clinic as well as the work we continue to do in his honor.
