To understand and serve the health and wellness
of our medically underserved neighbors.
May we have eyes to see those who are rendered invisible and excluded,
Open arms and hearts to reach out and include them,
Healing hands to touch their lives with love,
And in the process heal ourselves.
“If I ever came into some money one of the first things I would do would be to make a donation. You know the money is going to be used for the people that need it the most – the patients.”
“Everyone who is there wants to be there. They really demonstrate a level of caring that goes above what you would expect from anybody. I worked in a physician’s office for 30 years and the level of commitment from the volunteers is greater than anything I have ever seen in private practice.”
“All of these other doctors couldn’t figure out what’s wrong and the people at VIM were able to. These doctors who are volunteers really took an interest in my son and his case and came up with a diagnosis.”
“VIM makes a meaningful difference in people’s lives. Without VIM’s Surgical Program, I probably would have been in a wheelchair for the rest of my life.”
“I’m so happy to be a part of the Clinic because they make you feel better and give you more respect than a lot of other places will. They make you feel welcome and they take care of you. They treat me like I am special. They treat everybody that way.”
“Almost all the workers are volunteers and they get no money from the government at all. I love that. The people give their time and the community helps fund the clinic. They really deserve our support.”
“I feel so safe and happy at VIM. It’s been a big blessing for us and people should support the clinic in any way that they can. It really helps people like me. I don’t make a lot of money but I don’t have to worry about my medical care.”
