The work we do in preventing the suffering of vulnerable individuals has countless ripple effects for the entire community, beyond the Amish and Mennonite populations.
How do you measure success? How do you measure the value of reduced suffering in monetary value or in diseases discovered? Truly the impact of our work extends beyond just statistics.
Here are a few to help illustrate the far-reaching impact of the work that we do every day.

Each year the Clinic publishes an annual report highlighting our successes, challenges, and opportunities. We deeply appreciate the generosity of the many individuals, foundations, and organizations that support our mission to serve our special children and adults.

Our clinic serves as a trusted medical home for families working to prevent and treat genetic illness in their children. Serving predominantly Amish and Mennonite families, the sturdy, timber-framed building was "raised" by the hands of those in the Anabaptist community outside of Strasburg, PA. Inside the clinic is filled with an array of high-tech gene sequencing that allows us to deliver state of the art care in a nurturing environment.
