DESCRIPTION: B&B’s Health Boutique’s mission is to provide items such as help with medical services (i.e. prosthetics, bras that will carry breast prosthetic’s, wigs, co-pay help, deductible help, food help, hygiene items, bill help, education and when possible, housing help).
Our object is to serve our community by helping one person at a time. If we can make a difference starting in our own community, then maybe we can make a difference in other communities.
Every year, thousands of people visit a shelter each night. We would like to eventually provide financial support for medical services, job training and placement, telephones, showers, storage space and clothing. All services are provided free of charge. Currently we can provide soap, shampoo, & hygiene products. If we pair with a local community health services clinic, we may be able to introduce, to those who need it, basic medical treatment. This for us serves as a first line of defense and early detection for any health issues that may end up costing more should they be found later in their stages.
B&B’s Health patient necessity program will run each year at a cost starting off of a budget of $89,628. This amount will be used to provide financial need; co-pays, medication, patient transportation, gas cards, meals at home, and any other assistance necessary.
