Vista Community Clinic has been delivering healthcare to the community since 1972 and is now recognized as a key regional healthcare provider with eight state-of-the-art clinics treating more than 65,000 patients each year. VCC’s vision is a community where every person chooses health, and their mission is to advance community health by providing access to premier services and education for those who need it most.

While VCC is most well known for its physical-health related services, they also offer a range of programs that center around the total wellness of the person. The profits  from For Sanity will be donated to fund these programs. VCC programs cover children through adults, mothers and fathers, LGBTQ, and health related issues that face the community.

Appreciate the art and enjoy the energy each and everyone has to offer, as well as learn about healthy outlets through art and community resources.
