MVMC Annual Report 2015

To say the the MVMC is vital would be an understatement. For some people, we offer the only place where their voices can be heard. For others, we teach life skills or facilitate cultural understanding. Our scope of service is broad but our staff is small, proving that a tight-knit family is often all a person needs to grow and prosper.
