BENEFITING: Mary's Center for Maternal & Child Care, Inc.
When our 40,000 participants walk into any of Mary’s Center’s locations in the DC metropolitan region, they know that they are home. They know that everyone – from the receptionist who greets them warmly to the medical team that provides their care – has their best interests at heart. And it doesn’t just end with physical health. Mary’s Center provides a comprehensive model of care that takes into account all the factors that affect physical health, from the participants’ environment, housing situation, education and economic status. Our reason for being is “to build better futures by providing high-quality health care, education and social services.” But we can’t do it without you.
The impact of Mary’s Center’s work is visible in every family we serve. It is palpable in the mother who received pre-natal care and has a healthy baby. We see it in the young mom who is taught parenting skills that help her to raise her child. It is evident in the grandmother who is trained to manage her diabetes so she can care for grandchildren while their parents work. It manifests itself in the teenager who is taught resilience and coping skills so that they can overcome bullying, do better in school and succeed in everyday life. The services that Mary’s Center provides are making a real difference not only in the lives of the individuals we serve, but also in the communities where we provide services. Through Mary’s Center’s model of holistic, wraparound care, individuals and families are empowered to lift themselves out of poverty and strengthen their communities.
The future of the health care landscape is unknown but one thing is certain: Your support will help Mary’s Center continue to provide health care and support to everyone who seeks it in the region…insured or not. Please make a donation today!
