Mission of Mercy's staff and volunteers have the most sincere heart towards their patients - they truly love them! Through that love, they restore the dignity of those in need by meeting their most basic health care needs. The more I learned and became involved with MOM, the more impressed I was with their service to our community.

Meeting the needs of patients who are "falling through the cracks" of our current health care system.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the wonderful people who are so dedicated to their mission.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Wonderful, caring and dedicated.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
expand services to offer Dental Care at all clinic sites and see every patient who came to the clinic without people waiting in line from the wee hours of the morning.
