The Board of Directors of Mission of Mercy is pleased to announce Paula Carvalho has been named Executive Director for Mission of Mercy Arizona, effective January 1, 2018. Carvalho succeeds Catherine Amiot who joined Mission of Mercy in 2004.

Facilitating and ensuring a continued focus on the organization’s strategic growth priorities, Carvalho brings a wealth of experience to her new leadership role. As an integral part of the organization’s executive leadership for over ten years, Carvalho has been responsible for the oversight of program development and general operations in Arizona. She has played an instrumental role in many collaborative efforts that have helped define the growth of community health in Maricopa County.

Having served in various roles with health and human services organizations for the past 30 years, Carvalho understands the nonprofit sector and the needs in our community.

“I am honored to step into this important leadership role and I’m truly excited about the opportunities ahead. Together with the support of our dedicated Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and engaged philanthropic community, we will continue to grow the Arizona program, bringing access to quality health care to underserved communities,” Carvalho said.

Mission of Mercy is planning to expand its East Valley operations with the opening of a mobile clinic site in Chandler in March 2018.

“Mission of Mercy’s Board of Directors and staff stand unanimously behind Paula. We have confidence in Paula and the future success that she will bring to Mission of Mercy and the patients that we serve,” said Mission of Mercy CEO Henry W. Konerko, Ph.D.

Mission of Mercy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit mobile medical clinic serving Arizona since 1997. More than 250 volunteers serve at six clinic locations in Maricopa County, bringing free primary health care services, prescription medications, and the restoration of dignity to the uninsured, underinsured, working poor and homeless. In 2017, Mission of Mercy clinics provided more than 14,000 free patient visits and dispensed over 23,000 life-saving prescription medications.
