A New Day Begins....
Healthcare isn't a luxury. Those of us with health insurance go to sleep each night with security of knowing if we need to go to the doctor, we're covered. Shouldn't everyone have that same comfort?
Would you consider making a gift that will make a real difference in someone's life? It costs BVMI just $1,500 to provide healthcare to a patient for an entire year. That's a modest amount for a heartful of hope!
Who We Are and What We Do
The Bergen Volunteer Medical Initiative, Inc., is a volunteer nonprofit organization providing free primary and preventive medical care to low-income working people in Bergen County without insurance or the means to pay for care.
BVMI is the only state-licensed ambulatory care facility in the county that offers free healthcare for individuals earning up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines who do not have health insurance.
"When you take care of a person's health, you are taking care of their family and their community as well".
-Dr. Samuel A. Cassell
