"They really helped me. Talking to me, plus providing medicine that needed. And I just love them all to death."

Margie Darden has been coming to the Helping Hands Clinic, in Elkton, for three years now.

Marie Burns is the clinic's director. She says, "Helping Hands Health Clinic is a free clinic for people who are working, but do not have health care insurance. And that's the majority of people that fall through the gaps in the system."

The Helping Hands Clinic has been in the Elkton community for the past four years. And as employees here can tell you, it's not like any other doctor's office.

Wanda Brown works at the Helping Hands Health Clinic. She says, "You become really involved with each and every patient. As you get to know them, as you enroll the patients for medication. And each of us just really have a personal relationship with them and just really get involved with their lives."

Darden says, "When I came over here, I was very depressed. And I just really didn't care about life or anything. And they talked to me. And Miss Jane, she just helped me so much. I've just become friends with all of them."

Darden says she doesn't know where she'd be without Helping Hands. "I would really be desperate for my medication. I have asthma, and I have allergies. Just lots of things."

They've provided the helping hand she needed to regain her happiness and given her the support she needs.
