It's our birthday (2) 2
Since our founding on October 3, 2000, we have been fortunate to have great friends, donors and advocates of our work. Many of these same people have also volunteered their time to help provide medical care for some of our most vulnerable neighbors. Thank You!

Approximately 60,000 people in Montgomery County are uninsured and have no affordable means to obtain essential healthcare. By supporting Mercy Health Clinic through your workplace giving contributions, low-income people without health insurance can have access to primary healthcare and more than a dozen outpatient specialty health clinics.
