The resources listed here provide assistance in finding low-cost/affordable health care, including dental care. Volunteers are expected to only help with occasional transportation to health care appointments, upon the request of the volunteer coordinator. Scheduling appointments or arrangements made with health care professionals will be handled by MCC Refugee Services, not volunteers. These resources are here ONLY in case of an emergency or urgent-care need.
