Our Mission

To increase resources and understanding of partnerships to enhance and promote community-driven health improvement.


MDCC is based in Helena-West Helena, Phillips County, Arkansas. We are a 501 3 tax-exempt community based organizations founded in 2001. It is one of four partners of the Arkansas Rural Development Network (ADRDN). MDCC seeks to increase resources and understand of partnerships to enhance and promote community driven health improvement.


MDCC's work is accomplished at the community level by grassroots network affiliates - independent, locally run, nonprofit organizations. Each affiliate coordinates all aspects of MDCC building in its local area fund-raising, site selection, partnership and support.


Our purpose is to serve as a conduit of resources across the Delta. To oversee and develop consortium arrangements with other associations and organizations both local and statewide and regionally doing work with local communities in the Delta to improve access to health care and health related services.

MDCC is an equal opportunity program; individuals from all races, sexes, and creeds are encouraged to apply for volunteer opportunities.
