"Health is the most valuable asset we have, without it we can't do anything." -Dr. Maxine Hayes. We believe healthcare is a human right, that all families deserve to fulfill their potential because they have that most basic and necessary care easily and readily accessible.
Another great meeting with our interns this morning, a full clinic day and a 3 hr brain frenzy designing our charting system to great success!

A big THANK YOU to Michael and Bala's Plumbing for hooking up our new sinks and toilet!!!
Tomorrow at 7am we find out what time the lumber and hardware will be delivered and we will scrambling for volunteers to pop down and unload the truck. If you have free time tomorrow, watch here for the post--we'd love to see your smiling self and muscle power! Please note that the site IS NOT safe for children right now so we are looking for adult people sans children (and there's not many times you'll hear midwives say that sentence so it must be real!)
Very happy to announce our partnership with the Literacy Council of Seattle who will run our Moms Read program--bringing literacy with a focus on health and parenting navigation through classes and private tutoring at Rainer Valley Community Clinic
Today was superb! We connected with people who know all there is to know about free and low cost clinics, nonprofit organizational structure, exchanged fancy emails with some of our neighbors, moved along in the process with our interns (hooray for spreadsheets!), gave snacks to the UPS lady, joined 2 relevant and ever so amazing associations, moved a spider outside to enjoy its little life, got half way through a major grant application, and a third of our team had to vacate the premises to go catch a baby somewhere in the middle of all of that. Productivity is just Delish.
Thank you to Dr. Leah Spellen for donating unlimited high speed internet services to the clinic!! We are now on the lookout for tablets so that our clients can access information and resources in our online library! If you have used or new tablets in good condition sitting around the house, we would love to put them to good use!
Thank you SO much to everyone who donated and participated in the RVCC online auction. We truly appreciate your support and are so very grateful for community!
Very exciting community work evolving out of meetings with like-minded organizations. There is great power in working together!!
A great week at the clinic: seeing clients, organizing supplies, making amazing new connections with community organizations, planning the next two fundraisers, and grant submission sent in! We <3 this community!
Thank you to Families of Color Seattle for stopping by to get a tour, offer support and plan for shared programs. It was wonderful having you!
So excited to hear this from one of our guests today! From Kristin Kali, Midwife: "Oh my gosh you all! You've got to get down to the open house at Ranier Valley community clinic today. It's so amazing! Inspiring, heartwarming, such an amazing resource for South Seattle and a model for the nation." <3
