Mission of Mercy


Click here to sign up to volunteer now!

The 2024 Mission of Mercy will be held June 28 & 29 at the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, IL.

The Illinois Mission of Mercy (ILMOM) provides free dental care to patients who otherwise do not have the means or access to care. The clinic is set up in a convention center or school and patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is met.  There are no criteria or limitations on who may be treated other than they must meet the minimum health standards.  It takes 1,000 volunteers to run the clinic.  No one is paid for his/her time or talents.

The goal is to provide $1 million in free dental care to 2,000 patients in two days, concentrating on exams, cleanings, fillings and extractions. Limited lab work also will be offered.
