The Need

Welcome to Mission of Mercy!

Imagine a world where everyone has access to the care they need, no matter who they are or what their life situation is, with no judgement, just

Dignity, Love & Medicine.

State of the State – Healthcare in Texas

“Being able to come to Mission of Mercy has benefited me tremendously. My health has been a lot better and continues to get better. I have attended several educational classes such as diabetes foot care, diabetes education classes, and nutrition classes. The doctors and nurses are wonderful here. They are very professional, very kind, understanding, and caring. I hope people will continue to donate to Mission of Mercy. I know times are hard right now, but I hope people will still give what they can, that would be a wonderful thing to do.” – David, Mission of Mercy Texas patient
At MOM, we know that healthy people result in stronger, more resilient communities. A good life begins with good health, and Mission of Mercy is proud to meet this foundational need for our community’s most vulnerable.


Mission of Mercy – Where Compassion Meets Healthcare

As the population in Texas has undergone explosive growth and inflation and interest rates have sky-rocketed, we have watched our affordable housing crisis intensify and seen our grocery and gasoline bills double and triple. Unsurprisingly, the cost of healthcare services and prescription medications have also continued to rise, increasing by 6% last year while prescription medication saw up to an 18% increase in cost. As it becomes more expensive to live, healthcare has become even less accessible to those who struggle without insurance and without means. No one goes to the doctor when they are struggling to keep jobs, homes, and food on the table.

For over 25 years, Mission of Mercy in Arizona has been bringing the doctor to the people by embedding our 6 free mobile primary care clinics into communities where access to healthcare for marginalized communities is low. We provide primary and continuing medical care to the uninsured and underinsured and strive to provide every patient with a dignified and compassionate healthcare experience. 

Our patient demographic is 78% Hispanic/LatinX, 63% female and 87% of Mission of Mercy AZ patients suffering from chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, receiving an average of more than 2 prescription medications per medical visit. 

Mission of Mercy (EIN 86-0704883) and Mission of Mercy Health Partnership Fund (a supporting organization EIN 82-0635905) are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. Mission of Mercy Health Partnership Fund is a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO# 20941) for the Arizona Tax Credit.

To restore dignity to the sick, poor, and homeless by providing free medical, dental and pharmaceutical services and by acting as an instrument of “Healing through Love.”
To empower our patients through health education and behavior modification so they can better care for themselves.
We know that good health for one patient improves the overall resiliency of the entire family, and strong families strengthen communities. We know that all who come to Mission of Mercy do so because they are out of options. By bringing the doctor to the people and meeting patients where they live, we provide access to care that our vulnerable patients would otherwise be without, putting themselves and their families at risk. There are tens of thousands of community members — mothers, fathers, children, and grandparents — who have regained their health, been able to stay employed and take care of their families, thanks to Mission of Mercy free healthcare.
To serve as a catalyst for change in the healthcare community and to inspire others to improve the way they serve.
It just makes cents sense! … – Patients with chronic conditions who forgo treatment due to cost end up in emergency rooms receiving the most expensive care there is, and for which they have no ability to pay. This raises the overall cost of healthcare for everyone. Every $1 provided to MOM has a 21x return, meaning that $1 donated is actually $21 of value toward direct service for patients
