About Villa Therese Catholic Clinic
Villa Therese Catholic Clinic, founded in 1937 by The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, offers basic medical, dental, vision, and dermatology for children and families. The clinic addresses the needs of the uninsured and under-served populations in Santa Fe and Northern NM who have no other access to care. VTCC services are based on a compassionate “no questions asked” policy, regardless of income level, citizenship, religious affiliation or ability to pay. The clinic collects no revenue but instead operates through fundraising, foundation grants, private donations and the generous altruism of local physicians, dentists, and other volunteers.
Join Villa Therese Catholic Clinic for a grand night of delicious food, inspirational programming, and dancing to live music. Tickets are $150 each and can be purchased through the website.This article was posted by David Salcido
