"I just visited the Care-A-Van in Sandston for the first time today. I tried to find out all about before I came because it just seemed too good to be true. I kept waiting for the "other shoe to drop" and just knew there was a catch. I have worked over 40 years and have had insurance all that time but always hated to go to the doctor.  Well, today was a first for me in all my 62 years.  I have NEVER been treated so good as I was today. The ladies who helped me were absolutely amazing!"

"I have 4 daughters and I bring them all to the Care-A-Van. The Care-A-Van does their checkups, shots, and takes care of any health emergencies they have. Even though the services are free, I have always gotten great medical attention, from the reception to the medical services at the Care-A-Van, I couldn't ask for anything more!"

"I'd like to thank God for the Care-A-Van! What a tremendous ministry! I am a former educator and student athlete with a degree from UVA and never would have imagined myself in financial straits, no health insurance and having major problems physically. You folks do a tremendous job!"
