Mother of Mercy - Free Medical Clinic

Opening December 6th, 2017

If we want to help change history and promote real development, we need to hear the cry of the poor and commit ourselves to ending their marginalization.”

 (Pope Francis, World Day of the Poor Message)

The Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington (CCDA) mission proclaims a “duty to serve the most vulnerable of God’s people.” CCDA provides transformative services that offer hope and healing to those that operate in the peripheries of society – especially those in isolation and poverty.

An abortion clinic was closed down, members of the community bought the facility and approached Catholic Charities to see if we could offer a service of hope and transformation. Thus, Mother of Mercy Free Medical Clinic emerged.

Mother of Mercy Free Medical Clinic, a fruit of the Year of Mercy, and named for the maternal care that the Church provides, will fill a gap for an estimated 4,500 residents in low income households without insurance in the Manassas and Manassas Park area.

The clinic will not charge clients receiving basic medical care they could not otherwise obtain. All of the doctors and nurses who will work at the free clinic will volunteer their time to provide this free medical care.

The free clinic will also be a portal toward other necessary integrated services that Catholic Charities provides, such as: counseling, emergency financial and food assistance, and referrals for workforce development and immigration support.

Dr. Scott Ross, a deacon serving Holy Trinity Parish in nearby Gainesville, will be the volunteer medical director of the clinic. Dr. Ross is also a family physician with the Novant Health UVA Health System (Novant). Novant will also partner with CCDA to provide low cost medical services for qualifying individuals.

Serving Western Prince William County, Manassas City and Manassas Park residents in low-income households without health insurance, this clinic will open its doors December 6, 2017. For more information regarding
volunteering, donations, or general inquires call Clinic Director,
Alexandra Luevano, (703)-420-8992 (Direct) or email aluevano@ccda.net.

Address: 9380 Forestwood Lane, Unit B, Manassas, VA 20110

Thanksgiving Care Bags Project

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the abundance of God’s many blessings in our lives. It is also a time to recognize those among us who struggle with poverty and may not have a home to share God’s love.

This Thanksgiving, Catholic Charities asks you to come together with your loved ones to assemble meaningful Care Bags right in your own home. Your Care Bags will be distributed to those in need throughout the Diocese through our “Mobile Response Center Vehicle.” We appreciate your prayers and your support!

For more information, contact Sally O’Dwyer at sodwyer@ccda.net.
