Please Note
It is with much sadness that we inform you of the passing of our former Executive Director.  The Reverand Ed Gustafson passed away on June 29, 2016.  Father Ed was our first Executive Director and was responsible for establishing the Clinic as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, setting up our first Board of Directors and beginning our grant-writing process.  We are grateful for his guidance in our early year
