I assumed the role of executive director of a local cpc last June. At that time, and prior to that while serving as a volunteer, I understood that Devine Mercy Care (aka Tepeyak)provided excellent care for our clients who were abortion vulnerable and/or needing fancial assistance. The Board of the Center, along with the Executive Director approved the support for medical care many times for needy clients, always with positive results.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

discussion with my former director, through the testimonies of clients served, and also most recently in the dedication of the recently donated ultraound system.

I have worked with pregnant women for the past 25 years and Divine Mercy Care has been a wonderful resource for women with "problem" pregnancies, either for economic, social or health reasons. I always know that my women will get personal, compassionate care at an often difficult time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I also have been a patient at Divine Mercy Care and have found the care to be extraordinary.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The organization has been responsive to every woman I have ever referred -- with top notch care and compassion. They have literally saved the lives of the women and their babies.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

and would just serve more people. The organization isn't motivated by the money except that it allows them to care for more people.

The medical care and counseling are superb. My clients and friends have left appointments with their dignity intact -- feeling respected, listened to and cared for in a way they hadn't experienced in other practices. They are worth whatever effort it takes to get there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with my clients in counseling sessions.

Divine mercy Care is helping families and women all over northern Virginia, by providing support to Tepeyac Family Clinic, a prolife OB GYN. They help provide affordable life oriented health care to those in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways, mostly in the lives of those I have recommended to use the tdepayac family center.

Divine Mercy Care has provided excellent medical care, compassional support and loving service to the women and children of Northern Virginia for many years. I have sent dozens of women to them for pregnancy tests, STD tests, pregnancy support and labor and delivery. Divine Mercy ALWAYS gets rave reviews. The doctors and staff are greatly loved and appreciated for their selfless service to the community. They deserved the highest honors and support anyone can give them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of dozens of women who have come to my organization for assistance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hard pressed to think of any changes. They are SUPER.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their compassionate attitude and outstanding medical skills.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful and concerned about each individual.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

increase the number of women served who are unable to pay for the services they receive.

Ways to make it better...

the waiting room time were shorter.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the number of available staff to meet the demands of an ever increasing client base.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they deserve any support you can offer.

When a woman makes a choice to use a natural means of birth regulation, and seeks support and care from her doctor, often she is ridiculed and even threatened by her doctor. FertilityCare is a professionally administered teaching program for women and couples that also couples with Naprotechnology. It has been highly researched and the results are published in leading medical journals. It is a safe, effective means of birth regulation, and deserves the respect and support women receive at Divine Mercy Care. I highly commend their important work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing of my former client's praise for the Divine Mercy Care clinic.

Dr. John Bruchalski is a Saul to Paul conversion having performed abortions and coming to the Light of God realized what he was doing and subsequently began devoting his life to serving women who may choose abortion. I can tell you from personal experience: If you take the opportunity to converse with this fine Christian physician, you will leave a better person. I can also attest to the fact that many women who are currently in our prison system today have been sexually manipulated, abused and impregnated and coerced into having abortions. This Godly physician is not only saving the lives of God's most precious children but healing women's lives one soul at a time! What higher calling is that?

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Attending seminars run by Dr. John Bruchalski / Divine Mercy Care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Learning about the phenomenal work that they are doing in God's Holy Name.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Exemplary Christian physicians and health care personnel.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth! No exagerration. They are truly doing God's work. Divine Mercy Care doesn't stop at any point and say, "Wait a minute. Before we take another case, can we afford this?" It is a total walk in trust of the Lord.

Divine Mercy Care Foundation is more than a group of medical providers; they are a group of individuals committed to treating women with dignity and compassion while providing superior medical care. The services offered; without regard to patient religion, race, or financial situation respect the whole patient and the family unit. Families faced with challenging pregnancies are given the support, care and love needed to understand their unique situation and proceed to term without undue anxiety. Few pediatric hospice centers exist; DMC pioneered this hallmark service.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization through their openness to professionals in need of a practice setting in line with their morals and beliefs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love to see this organizational model replicated in other parts of the country. I know so very many women thrououghout the USA who want this caliber of service that just don't have access to such comprehensive care.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their openness to life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, forward thinking, exceptional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide exceptional obstetric care for more patients. Advertise nationally so providers looking for this practice setting would know they exist.

Ways to make it better...

they could have afforded medical space closer to DC. The decision for their current practice site allows for less overhead and more money for care - the right decision given their limited funds.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funds to care for more indigent patients.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The need for this type of practice setting - for the patient and the provider is DESPERATELY needed nationally. This model MUST be duplicated to make available this level of care to those outside of the northern VA metro region.

One of the most special things about Tepeyac is their commitment to families who have chosen to carry an infant with birth defects, rather than have an abortion. Their practice gives these women a medical home in the truest sense of the words, welcoming them in and treating them with respect. From my perspective, they help create a seamless transition to the hospital for the patient and those of us here by communicating the issue and giving us an opportunity to open a dialogue with the family so their needs are met.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The joy I see in the families cared for by them.
