The CVHC mission is to provide dental and vision services for people in financial need in Jefferson and Shelby Counties, while maintaining our clients’ dignity, respecting their cultural diversity, and strengthening the community.
CVHC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We were founded in April 2000 and organized our first vision screening in August 2001. In November 2003, CVHC began conducting dental screenings in conjunction with vision screenings. CVHC has since added specialty clinics for fillings and extractions. In March of 2016, CVHC moved to Cooper Green Health Services where we have begun to help even more people. Since moving to Cooper Green, CVHC’s patient load has grown from hundreds to thousands.
CVHC works with agencies in central Alabama such as Christ Health Center, Alabama Regional Medical Services, Hope Health Clinic, and The Foundry. With these resources we are able to assist our patients in finding care that they need.
