We Believe ...

The name comes from Ecclesiastes 11:1, which invites the reader to: "Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days." Maya Angelou writes further: When we cast our bread upon the waters, we can presume that someone downstream, whose face we may never see, will benefit from our action, even as we enjoy the fruits sent to us from a  donor upstream. All of us at the Bread of Healing Clinic are committed to achieving  health, not necessarily eliminating sickness.  For us, health is an issue of social justice, a right that belongs to all people...not a commodity to be "delivered" on the basis of finances.  We share all that we have  in the hope of healing, in the hope of moving all of us (patients and providers and volunteers) toward wholeness.  None of us can be in full health without sharing the burdens of other people's illness.  When we share those burdens, the pain and illness is no longer paralyzing. All of us are empowered.

Seketha's story

Seketha J. is an extremely friendly, extremely likeable individual. No one would know from just looking at her that she has been struggling with diabetes since 2000, and that lately she has been experiencing bouts of depression. Her smile is warm and engaging, and her manner is gentle and kind. She seems to be a very tolerant person, quick to forgive, eager to let bygones be bygones; an easy confidant to anyone who would take the time to know her.

BoH Makes a Big Financial Impact


Aurora Health Care contracted with an independent consultant to evaluate the financial impact of the clinical services that the Bread of Healing Clinic provided in 2013. The study estimated that the care provided by BOHC to 2000 uninsured patients in that year saved $4.16 to $4.64 million in health care costs in Milwaukee at large at a cost of $1.35 million -- a Return on Investment (ROI) of 209% to 244%. The major sources of these savings were avoidable emergency department use, reduced hospitalizations, increased patient earnings and improved quality of life.

Neil's Story

Neil M. was not very fond of talking about his work. “It’s just a job,” he said more than once, “just a way of paying the bills.” Neil has worked for this one employer for nearly ten years and although it has allowed him to maintain an existence, it has never provided him with health insurance. “I know many other people who don’t have health insurance, I guess I am one of them,” he remarked dolefully. When you are healthy this state of affairs doesn’t pose much of a problem, but in 2003 Neil wasn’t feeling well. He ended up in a hospital where it was discovered that he had diabetes. Now he needs regular medical care and daily medication.
