Through the changing health care landscape, Mission of Mercy is dedicated to serving those who would otherwise not have access to the care they need, with Love.
We know that the need for our services will only increase: According to a revised estimate by the Congressional Budget Office, even after the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is fully implemented, there will still be more than 30 million people who will be uninsured and in need of access to healthcare.
Additionally, there are some estimates that there will be a 52,000 shortage of physician providers nationwide.
Our mission to restore dignity and provide “healing through Love” is at the heart of everything we do. Restoring dignity means not accepting any funding that requires our patients to prove their poverty. That means we don’t take government or other funding that requires our patients to prove their poverty. We rely solely on donations from churches, private sector civic organizations, corporations, foundations and individuals.
As we look to the future, then, we’ll continue to build relationships within the communities we serve, with the aim of building long-term relationships that lead to sustainable annual giving and sponsorships.
