Mission of Mercy provides comprehensive health care for the uninsured - including dental care, X-rays, MRIs, free prescription medications, physical therapy, etc. - much, much more than other similar clinics. I can't say enough positive things about this fabulous, life saving resource

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

thousands of patients recieving medical or dental care (most of whom otherwise would go without).

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

continue working toward growth of the organization to more clinic sites.

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

getting to know the caring, loving volunteers and staff, and strengthening my relationship with God.

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

amazing! Dedicated! Reliable!

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

put a clinic in 10 new states.

Ways to make it better...

(I have no negative experiences to report).

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

coninually raising annual expenses without government support.

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

this organization is about more than health care. It is about individuals and Love.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
