November 09, 2023

Jackson, MS - St. Dominic’s and Stewpot Community Services celebrated the upcoming reopening of the St. Dominic Community Health Clinic on November 9th with a blessing of the newly remodeled clinic space. The St. Dominic’s Community Health Clinic, located within Stewpot Community Services, was forced to temporarily close due to water damage following the flood in August of 2022. After extensive repairs, the clinic is scheduled to reopen to patients on Monday, November 13, 2023.

“We are excited to welcome St. Dominic Community Health Clinic back to our campus. Their absence has only highlighted the critical gaps that they are closing for people who need access to care. Truly, the St. Dominic Community Health Clinic is making a difference in the lives of those who need help and hope,” said Rev. Jill Barnes Buckley, Executive Director of Stewpot Community Services.

Through close ties with Stewpot Community Services and the Central Urban Ministry Center, the St. Dominic Community Clinic was established in 1996 to serve those who cannot afford basic medical care.
