Outstanding Fundraising Professionals:
Mary's Center

Mary’s Center was founded thirty years ago to provide bilingual health services to pregnant women and their infants. We have grown from a basement clinic in Adams Morgan to an award-winning community-based health center with seven locations in the District of Columbia and Maryland, now serving more than 50,000 families per year. Using a holistic social change model, we provide comprehensive health, dental, mental health, education, job training and social services. Our participants are adults and children; for many families, we are their safety net and their partner in achieving a brighter future.

Nearly one-third of the participants Mary’s Center serves are uninsured and nearly two-thirds have Medicaid or another form of public insurance. In 2018, Mary's Center provided more than $8 million in free care to our uninsured participants. As the need for our services continues to grow, Mary’s Center stays true to our mission of providing quality care to everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of their ability to pay.

Mary’s Center is honored to have been chosen to receive the 2019 AFP DC Outstanding Fundraising Professionals Award. Our team is comprised of the following talent:
Maria Gomez, RN, MPH, President & CEO
Antonio Caro, Development Associate
Michelle Maxberry, Manager, Corporate Partnerships & Events
Sarah McIntosh, Assistant Director, Foundation Relations
Heather Morgan, CFRE, Chief Development Officer
Maria-Lynn Okanlawon, Development Assistant
