Community Collaboration

Through strong collaboration with local non-profits and the support of generous donors, BJVIM strives to leave a lasting impact on our community. The ability to combine resources and expertise with fellow non-profits in our area allows us to address a variety of needs comprehensively – spanning physical health, mental health, legal help and more.  This would not be possible without our generous donors who provide not only financial support but also lay the groundwork for a resilient community. Our collaborative efforts extend beyond immediate concerns, fostering long-term positive change through joint events with other outstanding organizations.

BJVIM recently dedicated an exam room at the Bluffton Clinic in honor of its founder, Jennifer Brown. Originally a volunteer with HHI VIM, she saw the need to have a clinic in Bluffton. Brown began the process and was with the organization when it opened in 2011. She was a part of the clinic until 2013 when she left to live in Australia. She remained interested in the clinic until her death on July 6, 2022.
