CVIM has been recognized by Philadelphia Magazine in the article “32 Ways to be Good Philadelphia”.  

“Community Volunteers in Medicine
Health Care
What They Do: Mend the Safety Net
Budget: $7.1M
Founded: 1998

Chester County is the healthiest and wealthiest in the state, but this West Chester nonprofit still saw 35,178 patient visits in 2016: Its clients are at or below 300 percent of the poverty line but don’t qualify for government support. Last spring, CVM won $100,000 from giving circle Impact100 Philly to expand its Mobile Dental Outreach program as well as fund a bilingual patient education guide. (About 55 percent of its clients speak Spanish.) The org relies mostly on volunteers and gifts, with an overhead of just 10 percent, so the equivalent of your flu shot co-pay will go a long way. Get involved: cvim.org”
