We can't do this alone.  That is why we are asking for your help.  It costs $8,800 each and every day to operate the clinic.  That is $44,000 a week, $176,000 each month and more than $2.2 million annually to keep the clinic doors open.  VIM is funded solely by the generosity of our community.  We simply could not continue our critical work for our neighbors who need us most without your help.  Your continued support will ensure everyone in our community has access to healthcare regardless of their ability to pay.
