Short Business Description: The mission of Kevin’s Community Center is to provide free health care to persons over the age of 18 who are uninsured or underinsured and have limited financial resources.
Long Business Description:

Kevin’s Community Center, Inc. (KCC) was founded in 2002 as a tax-exempt nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization by Dr. and Mrs. Z. Michael Taweh in memory of their son, Kevin to address the health care crisis in Connecticut for uninsured and underinsured adult residents of Newtown, Bridgewater and Roxbury. At that time, Dr. Taweh led a community-wide, grassroots effort to found the clinic involving state and municipal government and the business, medical, financial, nonprofit and religious sectors and the citizens who had a stake in the well-being of our community. To date we have provided more than 5,000 patient visits and have delivered more than $2,500,000 in free medical care including specialty care referrals. Through the 2008 collapse of the financial markets, KCC’s patient visits soared to 800-900 annually by 2010, serving on average 120 new patient visits per year for those who had lost their health care coverage.
