A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
People who live in poverty, immigrants, and refugees are just a few of those served by the volunteers of Clinic with a Heart. In 2016 volunteers provided over 2,800 visits to patients. Martha came to the clinic because she had an abscess. She has been in pain for many weeks. As the dentist examined her condition he saw she had a much more complicated condition and asked one of the volunteer medical providers to come in (both services are provided at the same time). It turns out Martha has a serious tumor growing in her mouth that was going to cut off her airway. Thanks to the collaborative care provided at the clinic and with the help of our referral coordinator, Martha was able to get into the hospital and have life-saving surgery.
