Become A Volunteer

Mission of Mercy assists patients with free medical care, vision care, and dental care through a volunteer-based, physician-centered model.  Currently, approximately 140 volunteers donate time and services to Mission of Mercy. Through volunteers and a small paid staff, we provide compassionate quality care to many patients in a dignified and comprehensive manner.  

 Our physician volunteers often work the same days each month, allowing for development of a strong doctor/patient relationship.  All volunteer physicians are required to have a current Texas license and are insured through Mission of Mercy’s medical malpractice policy. Our medical team includes doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, registration assistants, and data entry assistants. Volunteers also assist with special events, marketing, fundraising, office tasks, and other areas.

 We currently have volunteer opportunities for:

  • Physicians, Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, LVNs, EMTs, etc. – Provide direct patient care in a compassionate manor and represent our mission of restoring dignity, “Healing through Love”, and provide free medical care to people who are uninsured.
  • Data Entry Assistant – Enter vital information into patients records. Training is available.
  • Office Assistant – Assisting with our bulk mailouts by stuffing, sealing, and labeling envelopes for our direct mail, event postcards and invitations.
