The Craft House

Craft House provides free medical care to adults who don't have health insurance. The clinic got its start when a group of area churches figured out how to pool their resources to serve the poor. The health center is set up inside a brick house on Terry Road that a church member donated to neighboring Alta Woods United Methodist Church. Five medical professionals, including a doctor, a nurse practitioner and three nurses, volunteer at Craft House. Nurses, doctors and willing volunteers are all needed each Saturday when the ministry is open.
