We can look back with pride on our achievements in the last year, including serving over 36,000 participants, being certified by the DC Department of Behavioral Health as a Health Home Provider, and celebrating five years of successful operations at our Petworth clinic and Bernice Fonteneau Senior Wellness Center. We are fortunate and proud to have been recognized for our good work and received multiple awards this year, including being named one of The Washington Post’s 2016 Top Workplaces and a 2016 Top-Rated Nonprofit by GreatNonprofits!
In November 2015, we opened a Sonography Clinic at our Adams Morgan location, and now offer convenient and comprehensive services to our prenatal patients. So far 1,546 pregnant moms have had their sonograms done and experienced the joy of seeing the picture of the precious child growing in their womb and hearing their baby’s heartbeat.
This year, we are expanding our services and presence in the Washington area, through our Promise of Tomorrow campaign. We have a new clinic in the neighborhood of Fort Totten, where we anticipate serving 15,000 participants a year, including more pediatric dental patients and children with special needs. This new center will enable us to reach individuals and families in Northeast DC and neighboring Prince George’s County communities who need Mary’s Center’s quality of care and unique support network.
In Adams Morgan, we are building a new behavioral health center, and at our Petworth Clinic, we are opening our first pharmacy in Spring 2017! The pharmacy will serve all of our locations and will offer prescriptions at a discounted rate, making it easier for our participants to adhere to treatment plans. All these investments are being made to improve the wellbeing of patients, students and staff of Mary’s Center and Briya, our partner in education.
To sustain these initiatives and others so critical to our region, we are excited about our new planned giving program, Mary’s Center’s Legacy Society, to help Mary’s Center become even stronger and set thousands more participants on the path toward good health, stable families, and economic independence. We know that with your support the program will be a resounding success! Thank you for your partnership and your faithful friendship.
We hope you will enjoy this annual report and celebrate with us the impressive impact we have made together in our region.
