A group of truly caring and wonderful people who go out of their way to help those in need. I always admire their dedication to helping working families receive the treatment that they are unable to afford with today's healthcare system. Their work is of the utmost importance in the times that we live in and I sleep better knowing that there are nonprofits like the MVC who are there for their community.
They really benefit the local Macon community! There are so many Maconites who are hard workers but are not afforded the opportunity for health insurance; however, they can be seen by doctors at this clinic free of charge.
