GREAT BARRINGTON — Volunteers in Medicine (VIM) Berkshire in Great Barrington is one of 10 agencies, and the only one in Western Mass., to receive recent funding from the Mass. Medical Society (MMS) and Alliance Charitable Foundation.

The grants total $207,500 and support a range of health-related services, including support for the uninsured and underinsured, anti-violence programs, and assistance to physicians and their families.

VIM Berkshire received $20,000 to expand the agency’s case-management program for the medically uninsured. This is VIM’s fifth consecutive annual grant from the foundation.

Established in 2000, the foundation is a supporting organization of the MMS, the statewide association of physicians; and the MMS Alliance, the organization of physicians’ spouses committed to promoting good health among the citizens of Massachusetts. The foundation’s mission is to support the charitable and educational activities of the society and alliance and to address issues affecting the health, benefit, and welfare of the community.
