Like most nonprofit organizations, Hands of Hope Clinic has its hands full these days. On the campus of the Henry Medical Center in Stockbridge, the clinic provides free medical and dental care to uninsured and underserved residents of Henry County.

“We know that the demand far outstrips the services we can offer,” said Tom Shanahan, chairman of the board. “We needed to grow, but wanted to do it in a sustainable way.”

Fortunately, the organization was able to secure a grant through the Georgia Free Clinic Network for management consulting services."
