she came into the clinic with a donation to pay it forward. She said, “Once I started taking the medication, I got back to my old self. My happiness came back and I got two job offers.” I heard she was awarded employee of the year at a 50-person shop. – Dr. Jim
Our newest board member and volunteer healthcare provider, Dr. Richard Urso, enjoys seeing firsthand the benefits Open Arms makes in the lives of its patients. A semi-retired emergency room physician with family practice training, Dr. Urso finds using his talents to help people get back to work very rewarding. He is amazed at how simple care such as reviewing medications or explaining how to monitor diabetes can be a gamechanger for people lacking healthcare. Urso remarks, “It seems like a small thing, but it’s huge to the patient.”
He explains, “They want to get healthy and earn their way. They are genuinely thankful and appreciative. It’s like helping a neighbor and receiving their heartfelt thanks. You know you made a real difference.”
A patient in for routine diabetic care asked Dr. Urso, “Would you mind if I said a prayer for the clinic and all of you who help here.” Her prayer was for others to have access to the same care she had received. “It was a very sweet moment,” Urso adds.

Open Arms OPEN HOUSE
On March 7, 2018, Open Arms officially introduced its new clinic to a crowd of more than 100 supporters, local dignitaries and new friends. An army of volunteers worked for weeks before the event transforming a forgotten building to its full potential as a bright, modern health center. We are excited to report that one year later, we have added new social services, increased patient visits and welcomed many more volunteers. Our thanks to the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation and our generous donors for making this growth possible.
