How You Can Help

A HOLIDAY MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Florence portrait webI am a volunteer at VMSN. It is my great joy, privilege, and passion to serve as the CEO and President of Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada (VMSN). VMSN is my way to give back to this world in a tangible and impactful manner. At Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada we are building a healthy Las Vegas community, one patient, one family at a time. VMSN is truly a grassroots movement when it comes to the delivery of healthcare. We are the community’s response to its own healthcare needs. We are neighbors helping neighbors. VMSN is a Free and Charitable Clinic. It is estimated that there are three million medical and dental visits provided by Free and Charitable Clinics annually in the United States. We can see that Free Clinics are an integral part of the overall health care system. We provide a safety net for the working uninsured who are not covered by any other programs.

An estimated 300,000 patients will remain uninsured even after the full implementation of the ACA. They are “the working poor” – in other words, they earn too much for Medicaid but they can’t even afford insurance on the Exchange. We need your help.

Preview our Holiday Catalog. Please make your gift this holiday season and impact the lives of those who would otherwise go without health care.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

paradiso“My family and I all have medical conditions that we need care for. Until I found VMSN I was really scared as to how we were going to survive. We were a middle-class family doing great for years in [Las Vegas] then suddenly-no work no insurance. The VMSN facility and staff are very nice. VMSN doesn’t make you [feel ashamed] to ask for help. Thank you for saving our lives with the [ongoing treatment and medications] you provide, particularly for my Type 1 diabetic son.”
