Thank you,

Together, we’re working to make healthcare access possible for everyone

Our Advocates program recognizes the individuals who show their support for MLK Community Healthcare with a major gift.

The individuals and couples featured on this page are leaders. In making annual gifts of $1,000 and above, Advocates demonstrate their passion for our mission—and their deep belief in our ability to achieve it. Their giving excites us daily in our work and rallies others to get to know us. We’re grateful for their support.
