Thanks to our 2018 Gala committee members , who were very dedicated with their time and expertise in helping to prepare for this year's event.

The continued support of the VIM mission over the past ten years is simply amazing! In 2008, the clinic opened with an Executive Director, one nurse and one volunteer doctor. Today, we have a core group of over 150 volunteers that have assisted in increasing medical, dental and behavioral health services to low income families in Luzerne County. Thanks to the philanthropic "Valley with a Heart" , VIM will continue to be the safety-net provider to our neighbors that are working but still have no access to affordable health insurance.
