As the place for better health and development for all, we turn no one away from a membership or service because of financial hardship. We are able to do this in part by the generous time and skills of our volunteers.
It is from the help of volunteers and donors that we are able to subsidize memberships and offer much needed health programs for the community today and tomorrow.
