Bringing Health and Healing to Open Door Mission Guests

Jun 16, 2015  |     |   General

     Katie O’Keefe is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner that volunteers her time every Monday in our Free Health & Healing Clinic.  Katie dedicates her skills to attending to the needs of the children living on the Open Door Mission campus and in our 2911 homelessness prevention program.
     It is amazing to watch her work with the children with such care and concern for their health.  Many of these kids have gone years without seeing a medical professional, despite any health problems they may have.  It is too difficult to make a doctor’s appointment without even a home address to fill out on the forms.  Volunteers like Katie ensure that our guests receive medical healing, which is often a vital building block in the foundation for recovery and lasting change.
     She is one of many medical professionals that volunteer to help meet the medical needs of the homeless in our community.  Would you like to be one of them?  Contact me at kfischer@opendoormission.org or call 402-829-1541.  Hope to see you soon!
