Florida free clinic in dire financial straits
St. Petersburg Times, March 14, 2008
Testimonies abound about the value of the Willa Carson Health Resource Center, in North Greenwood, FL, but the small, popular, free clinic is on financial life-support. If an infusion of cash isn't received soon, the clinic--founded in 1995 by registered nurse Willa Carson to provide healthcare to the poor--could close in three months. The center has just $10,000 in cash. Its leaders are considering cuts to the clinic's $250,000 yearly budget.
