Orlando Approves Grant For New Homeless Health Clinic
The Health Care Center for the Homeless received a grant Monday from the city of Orlando to build another clinic.
The $575,000 grant will allow Health Care Center for the Homeless to buy a building in West Orlando for a new clinic. The non-profit saw nearly 16,000 patients last year at its six locations.
The new clinic would offer primary, dental and behavioral health services to the homeless, as well as a pharmacy. It would also be available for low-income patients.
The non-profit expects to buy the property by next September 2016 and open the new clinic by 2020.
