BENEFITING: Mary's Center for Maternal & Child Care, Inc.
I started working at Mary's Center in January and instantly fell in love. The staff are friendly, the work environment is positive, and most importantly, the organization's mission is one I am passionate about. Mary's Center provides wraparound, holistic care to the DMV's most vulnerable populations.
The impact of the work of Mary’s Center is visible in every family we serve. We see it in the young mother 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 that 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. It is palpable in the mother who received pre-natal care and has a healthy baby. The services that Mary’s Center provides are making a distinct difference not only in the physical health of the individuals we serve, but also in the entire 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 uplift their communities.
As the future of healthcare hangs in the balance, Mary's Center prepares to safeguard the health of each one of our participants, but we need your help in order to do so!! When you give to Mary's Center, you transcend partisanship and you make healthcare equitable, providing a lifeline for our communities’ most vulnerable residents.
