Our Mission: To restore dignity, “Healing through Love”, by providing free healthcare.
Founded in 1991 and launched in 1994 by Dr. Gianna Talone Sullivan in response to a life-changing divine call, Mission of Mercy is an independent nonprofit 501 (c)(3), faith-based community organization dedicated to providing “Healing through Love”.
We call on the experience of active and retired licensed healthcare professionals who volunteer their time to provide free medical services and prescription medications to the uninsured working poor, homeless and economically disadvantaged people of Arizona, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Texas.
The services provided at our 16 health clinics are provided regardless of race, color, creed, national origin or religion. All services are free and no fees are charged. No one is denied service because of their inability to pay.
At Mission of Mercy, we have six main objectives:
- To restore dignity to the sick, poor, and homeless by providing free medical and pharmaceutical services and by acting as an instrument of “Healing through Love.”
- To serve as a catalyst for change in the healthcare community and to inspire others to improve the way they serve.
- To educate our patients about healthcare and to empower them to care for themselves.
- To provide free healthcare to the uninsured working poor so they can remain healthy, self-sufficient and able to work.
- To provide healthcare to those moving off of the welfare system and into work.
- To provide healthcare to the economically disadvantaged that are in transition from being recently unemployed to seeking new employment.
