Looking Ahead to 2017

Happy New Year from the Mary’s Center family!
 
As we look at the year ahead, we brace ourselves for the uncertainty of potential changes in laws and policies that directly affect Mary’s Center and our ability to care for the thousands of people who rely on public insurance programs that may be defunded. It is our promise to the individuals we serve to continue to educate lawmakers on the many ways Mary’s Center and other health centers like us, advance and empower our vulnerable neighbors.
