Midvale City began the Community-Building-Community Initiative (CBC) in 1998 to improve the general well-being of Midvale residents. The CBC is a collaborative effort that brings together the stakeholders in the Midvale community, including the residents, in the planning process.
The CBC has set five goals and committees (Health, Stable Families, Education, Safety, and Income). Each committee is comprised of community members and service providers who identify barriers, problems, resources, and solutions.
Mission: Quality health care is a vital necessity for every child and adult. The Maliheh Free Clinic seeks to improve the quality of life in the Greater Salt Lake Area by providing free medical services for uninsured individuals and low income families.
Because medical insurance and medical care is very expensive, many Utahan’s lack insurance coverage and do not receive the medical care they need. The Maliheh Free Clinic endeavors, within its capacity, to serve the medical care needs of low-income individuals in our community who have no other options. No charges are assessed for services provided by the Maliheh Clinic.
