More than 20 years ago, as our organization was preparing to move into its brand new main campus, the medical professionals and volunteers behind SVdP's small-scale free community clinic had to decide whether to recreate the original clinic model, try to establish a further-reaching medical and dental clinic, or stop providing this service altogether. Determined, the group set out to find resources to build a bigger clinic, better suited to meet the needs of the community.
The new clinic opened its doors in April of 1994. Since then, it has continued to grow and last year provided more than 17,000 visits and $4.2 million of market value services.
We tend to important medical issues for those who cannot afford it with understanding and dignity. And because of the philosophy of our clinic, which is to not only to cure bad health, but to curate good health, your day of generosity will keep on giving for years to come.
