Caitlin Dahmer


Caitlin is a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) who is honored to begin serving at Hospital Mision Tarahumara in the northern Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. Tarahumara women have one of the world's highest rates of maternal and infant mortality. They live in remote villages dispersed across the Copper Canyon region of Chihuahua and their lives are shaped by tremendous need and lack of resources. Caitlin feels God has been preparing and leading her specifically to this location for years.
She first sensed God's call while in nursing school at Calvin College. She went on to complete her graduate studies at the University of Michigan to become a nurse midwife. After graduation, the Lord led her to work at Lawndale Christian Health Center, where she has been faithfully serving the impoverished neighborhoods of Chicago's west side for five years.
Now as she looks to transition to Hospital Mision Tarahumara, she is excited to build relationships, invest, serve, and do her part in bringing about God's Kingdom to an indigenous people that do not know the Lord. She hopes that through her partnership with this hospital and Christian Health Service Corps, the Tarahumara people will come to know the saving grace and steadfast love of our Lord Jesus Christ both individually and eventually as a community.
