Connecting Community Health Services with Those in Need
Compassion Passion & Innovation
HealthConnect.Link is creating an online community of free and subsidized health and social services. Our goal is to help vulnerable people in our community access the help they need. We will help make these meaningful connections by quickly identifying organizations close by with the ability to provide the care patients need. How will it work? Click here to learn more.
“Our online community will include a broad array of free and subsidized health services; from primary care, mental health and dentistry, to emergency housing, food pantries, childcare, transportation and more.”

It is designed to be familiar and intuitive. Searches are fast and results show up as color-coded pins on a fully interactive Google Map. The color-coding allows you to instantly identify nearby provider’s who can accept a new patient or offer the care and assistance a patient needs; you can even print off a map with directions to give to your patient.
Kent County is one of the most severely underserved communities in Tennessee. To combat this adversity, Project Sprout seeks to nourish our neighbors at the most fundamental level with healthy food options and a strong support network. All members get a portion of each harvest and surpluses are donated to low-income families whose work schedules prevent them from volunteering.

With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
