How The Luke Project 52 Clinic is standing in the gap for vulnerable women and children

If anyone understands Ezekiel 2:30’s call to “stand in the gap” for the needy, it’s Reverend Brad Garrison and his team at The Luke Project 52 Clinic.

After completing FiveTwo’s StartNew training program nearly four years ago, the free prenatal and infant care clinic successfully launched at a church in southwest Detroit. But when low-income mothers need to be referred to a local hospital for high-risk issues, more than 60 percent of the time the moms don’t go due to lack of transportation, work, or childcare issues.

The clinic knew they needed to do something about the gap. So Brad picked up the business canvas he wrote during his StartNew training, revised it, and sent it to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBS).

A $75,000 grant awarded by BCBS is now funding a Mobile Antenatal Testing Pilot Project that includes an outreach vehicle to make once-a-week visits to the homes of expectant moms at risk to provide antenatal testing. Two initial test runs this past winter resulted in 100 percent of the patients being seen. And as the year progresses, Brad hopes to see 150 testing visits completed in Detroit and expansion into Flint, Michigan.

“I never imagined that [The Luke Project 52 Clinic] would be today what it is today,” he admits. “Our [staff]’s faith has grown and how many people we are reaching continues to grow.”

The clinic remains on the frontlines as they continue to see patients during the health crisis facing our nation. But they urgently need masks, goggles, gowns, and gloves for their medical team — as well as scales, digital blood pressure monitors, and baby dopplers for the moms they serve.

Please help continue to support ministries like The Luke Project 52 Clinic. More believers like Brad and his team are waiting to stand in the gap, too. Let’s help them get their ministries started and bring the presence of Jesus into their communities!
