Healthcare or Rent…
Which Would You Choose?
Many of our patients come to us with this choice to make…healthcare or rent?? Grocieries or medication? Since Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine opened its doors more than seven years ago, our patient list grows with each passing year. With YOUR help, our patients won’t have to choose between two very important needs.
we are on your side
You are welcome here
Thank you Dr. Dennis Mayer
It is with a bittersweetness that we recently said a goodbye to Dr. Dennis Mayer. Dr. Mayer has been a CVIM volunteer provider since 2015 and has done over 350 hours of volunteer work. Happy Retirement Dr. Mayer!
The Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine Community is so grateful to have had Dennis be a part of the clinic. He has been a compassionate doctor to patients and a kind mentor (and bestower of ice cream!) to the scribes.
“Every individual matters.
Every individual has a role to play.
Every individual makes a difference.”
As much as Dennis will be missed here at CVIM we know he is going to enjoy spending time with his Katy, family and being PopPop to his three granddaughters…and that he gets to “better his golf game” to his heart’s desire!

County Employees Donate to CVIM
Clackamas County’s Mental Health Clinic (MHC) recently rallied support for CVIM and donated $500 that they raised by organizing a chili contest followed by a pie contest and a cookie contest! . We couldn’t be more grateful for their generosity. Clackamas County’s Mental Health Clinic (MHC) and Clackamas Volunteers in Medicine (CVIM) have different missions but are connected by their passion for access to care. Both clinics opened in 2012 and serve many of the same patients. (click to see the full article!)
