All pregnancy services are provided free of charge and include: pregnancy tests, limited obstetrical ultrasounds, prenatal education and vitamins and access to our Bridge Program. We connect clients with a partnering OBs (who accept clients regardless of their insurance status) to obtain full prenatal care. Our Bridge program provides in-depth support through the following components: personal growth counseling, mentorship and education. Through participation, clients earn point-based material assistance for items such as maternity and baby items. Trained mentors help clients set personal goals, establish obstetrical care, assist with WIC, TennCare and food stamp applications and provide referrals as needed for housing/resources. Taught in partnership with Belmont University's School of Nursing, Bridge education classes include newborn care, parenting, emotional growth and budgeting.

Tennessee ranks 11th highest in the US for STDs (with Davidson among the highest counties). A recent CDC study reports young people ages 15-24 have 4 times the reported STD rate. Through presentations and small groups, Hope Clinic educates adolescents about the short and long term emotional, spiritual and physical benefits of abstinence and the risks involved in early sexual activity. Our Prevention team is comprised of Sexual Risk Avoidance Educators, who are certified through the national organization, Ascend, in Washington, DC. This comprehensive curriculum uses evidence-based strategies and integrates positive youth development, builds protective factors, and provides youth with a safe place to ask questions and receive medically accurate information. Our educators also provide training for parents that equips them to talk with their children about sexual activity, risky behaviors, online and cell phone usage, and bullying.

Through our Women's Healthcare Services we provide women's well visits, STD (including HIV) testing/paps and any counseling follow-up required/requested with a difficult prognosis.Medical care is provided by Nurse Practitioners and RNs to address the most immediate, critical concerns a client has when coming to Hope Clinic. Approximately half of our clients test positive for a sexually transmitted disease and must then face what can be a frightening journey with managing a chronic illness such as Herpes, HIV, Chlamydia or Syphilis.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

When I arrived on staff in 2004, my main goal was to begin to track quantifiable data to ensure that each and every client that walked in the door received the same level of professional care. We also added measurable outcomes before that was a common request from fundraisers. We find it critical that our clients leave here changed, more equipped, more mentally healthy, and more self-sustaining than when they arrived. That is combined with all the post-visit survey results and client comments we track. We want to be sure our client's voice is heard. We want to be sure our investors are getting their monies worth. We want to be sure what we do matters and helps the community of Middle Tennessee.
